Emmaline’s inspiration for the business: I became interested in using natural, plant-based skincare products when it became difficult to find products that worked well for my sensitive skin. When I moved to California from New York, the warmer yearly climate, and the property I lived on, made it easy for me to grow medicinal plants that I began using to help my skin.

How Saint Rose helped Emmaline’s career: Saint Rose made me a confident and motivated individual! I had inspirational and encouraging professors throughout my college experience who helped prepare me to handle real-life situations. I never imagined owning a business while studying to be an art educator, but I still use so much of what I learned while at Saint Rose in my business.
