GET TO KNOW THE FOUNDER
My name is Alyssa and I am the Founder of White Olive Co. But, let me tell you who I am outside of the collective.
I valued health from an early age, as I was a competitive gymnast for 10 years. During that decade, I was on a high caloric intake for my age & size to maintain my fitness while being in the gym training 25+ hours a week.
After I retired, I moved on to filling my schedule with high school, track & field, dance and WORK. I went to a technical high school and was pursuing my craft, Hair Dressing, at only 16 years old.
After graduation, I opened my own salon at 19 years old! Fast forward three years and I noticed the toxins I was being exposed to at work daily.
After suffering from thyroid issues, extreme fatigue, migraines and an unhealthy eating pattern, I decided enough is enough. I threw myself into research on “safer” products and chemicals to use behind the chair to lower my toxin load and relieve some of my symptoms.
Then I thought, “Why would my research stop here?” And I continued my search for all daily items, bringing us to White Olive Collective.
On a personal note, I am a homeowner in the New England area, have three fur babies & love working out, hiking, being on the water and listening to podcasts.
I switched about 85% of my diet over to organic in 2021. Around the same time, I was investing in air purifiers, water filters, and holistic health remedies.
That’s when my life changed and my interest with healthy living consumed me. It may be an obsession, but it's an obsession that doesn't hurt anyone, so it’s here to stay!
Thanks for learning more about me. Now, if you haven’t already, go read HOW WHITE OLIVE WAS BORN to hear our story.
-Alyssa, Founder of White Olive Co
I am going to share a story with you. It’s a sad one, but it has a sweet ending. In June of 2022, my cat passed away from Lymphoma.
After 11 amazing years with her by my side, I had to face each day without her which was an awful experience as you can imagine.
In July of 2022, my family dog passed away from cancer that had spread throughout her body. We loved on her for 8 years and then within two months she completely deteriorated until her body couldn’t handle being here with us anymore.
Losing two beloved animals within 6 weeks from each other sent me into a downward spiral. I read statistic after statistic and realized that dogs get cancer at the same rate that humans do.
One of the biggest factors can be what they ingest. Now, if you read GET TO KNOW THE FOUNDER, then you know my obsession with clean products and holistic living started before these tragedies.
When I lost both of my pets back to back from illnesses that could have been prevented or postponed, I thought to myself, “More people need to understand the dangers of hurting a healthy body.”
What we as humans or animals ingest affects our health, affects our life expectancy, affects our mood and so much more. But, what we put ON our bodies affects all of those things as well.
White Olive Co was created to take all of my extensive research and bring it to YOU. It’s taking the hard work out of finding clean products that actually work!
White Olive isn’t just a store, it’s a movement. We are here to make holistic health mainstream. We are here to help you keep your health and happiness.
We are here to inspire those who are sick to make a change to better their future.
Finally, White Olive Collective is here to honor my family dog. She was our (white) Olive.
