More about Therese:

Therese(Tee) is a Detox Your Home Guru and Health Coach at
The Green Living Gurus.  She grew up in a very healthy home in the 60’s and 70’s, went to college to open a health food store,  and has been helping people for over 40 years keep toxicants out of their homes.

She is an entrepreneur, activist, podcast host, and educator. She spreads awareness of chemicals in everyday products that could cause many autoimmune illnesses, cancer, and other health issues. She guides women in creating a less toxic home and lifestyle to ultimately increase the odds of a long, healthy, vital life and a safe environment in their homes.

She does all of this through her weekly podcast, Green Living with Tee, her newsletter, blog posts, social media, home detox coaching, and ‘Tee’s Organics’, a line of household products that are healthy for you and your home.

I’ve teamed up with Kate House of The Live By Design Co., and fifteen other world-class speakers, to create something that’ll support you in ending the year strong with energy, intention, and focus!

Introducing The Empowered Self Summit

I want those of us who give to others before ourselves, who feel guilty taking time to pour into our own self-care, and who are ready to finally take ourselves off the back-burner of our lives, to have a place to:

* Nurture our minds

* Energize our bodies

* Awaken our souls

*All in just 10 minutes increments each day!

This year let’s implement totally doable, guilt-free self care practices so we can move through the holiday season purposefully (and without overextending ourselves!). Best of all, we’ll enter 2024 feeling energized and excited about the year to come, because you’ve already spent the past few months creating a solid foundation of self-care!
