Women in Wellness: Who to Watch
Wellness is one of the most popular trend gracing the spotlight. As women make their way to the top in food activism, entrepreneurship and food guru(ism), there is an increasing demand to focus inwardly and look at what we put in our bodies versus what we put on. We here at TRIBE keep our eyes out for the latest shakers and makers in wellness, and here are a few we have our eyes on!
