Aloha! My name is Amelia, and I am so excited to welcome you to my site and connect with you here, in this space. Since a young age, I have been passionate about health, happiness, and well-being for ourselves, the animals, and our planet. As an avid traveler, animal lover, and long time water-woman, being able to combine my greatest interests and hobbies into one virtual “hub” is a dream come true for me.
I moved to Hawaii at 18 years old after years of cutting photos out of travel magazines and visualizing myself spending more time in the sea. Three years into my marine biology studies at the University of Hawaii and one year into a plant-based vegan diet, I discovered how passionate I was about food and nutrition and how uninspired I felt spending long hours in a lab each week. I left college to pursue my own path, became a certified Holistic Health Coach, and founded my online health and wellness brand, Salt, Sand & Smoothies. I created an Instagram account at first to share new plant-based recipes that I was discovering and connect with others who were exploring a similar lifestyle as me. Since then, I’ve worked with dozens of families, individuals, and other young adults who are interested in learning more about obtaining true health and well-being through a plant-based diet and a positive, low-stress lifestyle.
My intention is to inspire others to adopt healthier and more natural everyday habits for the mind, body, and spirit. I believe that each one of us has the potential to achieve optimal health and happiness without harming others, animals, or the planet. Whether you're here for simple health tips, daily mindfulness practices, or travel photos, I hope this website serves you and offers a virtual oasis from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Go with health,
My team and I are so excited to connect with you further and be a part of your next project. Don't be shy, reach out below!
