Our Mission

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 practical, sustainable wellness opportunities for your staff and employees in order to help balance the lives of those served, including students, patients, and clients. I invite you to learn more about our amazing team below and contact us to help you improve the lives of those around you.
