hippie + rainbow chaser
Haylee is the founder and accidental CEO of Whimsy + Wellness. Master product developer, endless idea generator, and resident mood lifter (seriously, she is never not smiling) she leads her company with grace and humor. When Haylee is not looking at spreadsheets and Pantone colors, she's mom to Mason, Posey, and Golden.
operations guru + mr. to-do
Russ left corporate America in 2018 to work full-time at Whimsy + Wellness. He is the operations manager and supports all of Haylee’s crazy ideas. Once the product gets made, Russ works with our team to ensure that every bottle is checked for quality, packed into sets, and makes it to your hands! He’s also the numbers guy and human resources guru.
box builder, sticker guru, + cap checker
Mason is 9 and gets paid in candy (we offered money, but he declined) to help us sticker boxes, build boxes, check caps for damages, and other business help. He doesn't usually last long, but loves working along side dad and especially enjoys his payment.
rainbow baby + business partner
Posey is our 3 year old rainbow baby and business partner. She loves visiting the warehouse where she gets “special drinks”, coloring on the walls when we aren’t looking, and finding other ways to make working take 10x longer than without her around.
drooler + nightly alarm clock
Golden, or "Goldie", as we affectionately call her, is 1 and stays busy smiling, crawling after her sister, and keeping us awake at night. She was born amongst the chaos of a launch (I was working from the hospital bed after she was born!) and she’s captured our hearts ever since.
Wendee is Haylee’s mom and resident “Nana”. She wrangles our children so that we can actually focus on work! This is her dream job and she still can’t believe she gets to do it!
Jason is our whimsy warehouse wizard! He keeps all of our inventory in tip top shape and makes sure each of your orders is packed perfectly. He managed everything from our crew that packs orders, to unpacking all the pallets of product we get delivered.
sales and marketing wizard + book lover
Mary Beth jumped into Whimsy + Wellness as a marketing consultant and after falling in love with the company never looked back. She now runs the marketing campaigns, keeps the website spiffy with her husband, manages wholesale and affiliate relations, and strategizes with Haylee on how to continue growing the business. Her favorite thing to do outside of work is read and go on weekend adventures with her husband and 4 kids. Oh, and fun fact! Mary Beth and Mandy are sisters!
customer service + sunshine savorer
Mandy just joined the team and is our customer care extraordinaire. She loves taking care of people and using her gifts to connect and serve. She also ties all of our team's loose ends together with her attention to detail and superb organization. Outside of work, she loves trying local coffee places, getting outside in the Florida sunshine, and diffusing a combination of frankincense, rosewood, spruce, and blue tansy.
content creator + idea generator
Meg is a new mom and an avid essential oil user with wellness tips coming out of her ears. If you need a sleep support essential oil blend or a tip for getting rid of headaches she'll whip up a couple ideas in a jiffy. She joined our team to help relieve our growing pains and now schedules all of our social media content and generates new wellness tips for all of our whimsy readers!
marketing guru + research maven
Jenessa has been working with Whimsy and Wellness since Posey was a baby (WAY back when Whimsy and Wellness was a team of 1- just Haylee!). She met Haylee at a co-working space in Sacramento (where she would wear Posey while Haylee worked!) and soon her background in marketing and advertising with large companies turned into a passion for helping small female owned businesses grow. She runs the email and text marketing campaigns and loves researching new and exciting ways to support Whimsy + Wellness. She is a single mama raising her tiny girl gang in the foothills of Northern California where she runs on dreams and caffeine (and running half marathons when she has the time to train)!
warehouse team member
Trish joined our warehouse from the very beginning and does everything from packing orders, to building sets! She works with us full time and is loving working with a family run business.
warehouse team member
Meredith joined our warehouse when the paint was still drying on the walls! She works with us part time and makes sure your packages are in tip top shape and ready to bring whimsy to your homes.
sister + label maker
Mattee is Haylee’s sister and the ultimate label maker. She works on-call creating labels when we need them. Her full time job is with another woman-owned small business and Mattee’s knowledge and insight has been so helpful in deciding what we can do better! Learning from other small businesses is extremely helpful.
