Welcome to Steeping Wellness

The whole idea of Steeping Wellness is just that: for school districts, companies, and other organizations to slowly infuse wellness opportunities for employees in order to help balance their lives and better support the lives of those served.  

“The wisdom of our decision to partner with Steeping Wellness has been repeatedly confirmed.  As fellow educators, Kalise and Pam understand both the joy and the challenges inherent in our demanding work. Their resources are relevant, purposeful, and valued.  Our partnership with Steeping Wellness is making a significant and positive difference in the well-being of our employees.”

Annette VanHook Thompson, Ed.D.

District Administrator, Dodgeland School District

Steeping Wellness is rooted in helping school districts to support the well-being of educators so they can then go on to the tough work of taking care of their students, tackling equity and social justice issues, creating environments to support Social-Emotional Learning, aiding students with trauma, and more. With both experience in the classroom and School Wellness Programming, our programs will effectively and efficiently enhance the climate of well-being in your district for a positive, sustainable future. Take a closer look at how school district wellness programs have a positive impact on the lives of educators, students, families, and more on our Why School Wellness? page.

While our passion for well-being began for educators, our proven programs have also been shown to greatly impact businesses.  Whether you’re just beginning to explore the importance of employee wellness programs, wanting to bring in a presenter for personal development, seeking advice on your wellness program, or interested in providing a place of restoration and relaxation during the workday for your employees, we’re here for you.

“As a school district leader, I have been impressed with Kalise through her countless ideas, innovations, and thoughtful opportunities to engage staff in wellness.  By our District contracting with Kalise at Steeping Wellness, our staff has access to an educator who understands K-12 Education and the physical and emotional challenges associated with our important work to serve children, families, and our communities.  I encourage your organization to ‘Be Well’ with a facilitator, leader, and innovator who can meet employees where they are.  Wellness matters and your investment starts with meaningful guidance, support, and ownership.”

“I am incredibly thankful for the two of you (Pam and Kalise), for guiding me on this journey.  I am such a better person now than I was, because I pause.  It’s such a critical aspect of living a happy, healthy life.  Thank you.”

We had so much fun hanging out with Josh Spreiter from Channel 3000 to talk about our passion: Supporting the well-being of educators.

We loved chatting on the “Go Local Wisconsin” podcast,  interviewed by Jason from At Your Core Communications about our work with local school districts and beyond!

Dane Buy Local has ben a great supporter of ours. Listen in as we spoke about our mission to support well-being across Dane County and more on the “Let’s Get Local” radio program

We were honored to have the opportunity to donate a Steeping Studio to ThedaCare Waupaca to support the hospital staff.  Take a look at the article and video which features both the Waupaca (where we donated) and Appleton hospitals.

We’re filled with joy and gratitude for the opportunity to be on this special podcast and to meet a new friend and educator from New Orleans. Listen to the podcast
