A note from our CEO:
As a former teacher and current school district Wellness Coordinator, I created Steeping Wellness out of a passion to infuse wellness throughout districts in the state of Wisconsin. The whole idea of Steeping Wellness is just that: to slowly infuse wellness opportunities for your staff in order to help balance the lives of those served, including students. I invite you to learn more about our amazing team (below) and contact us to help you improve the lives of those around you.
In Health & Happiness,
Kalise Horst, CWP
