Founder & CEO
I love hiking the hills of Marin, creating delicious nutrient dense food, meditating in the morning, playing with dogs, and going deep with my amazing son Carson and his tribe. Permaculture, conscious business, early education and Burning Man tickle me to the core. I thrive on creativity and developing products that are truly needed in the world and make a difference in peoples live. Octopus is my spirit animal.
Reformed New Yorker, converted Californian. I prefer redwood trees to skyscrapers. If I’m not hard at work, you’ll find me in the mountains or at hot yoga. My spirit animal is my Boston Terrier, Maya, who’s snores and snorts are often the office background noise.
National Sales Manager
I have been an Essential Oxygen user since the company started 12 yrs. ago. I love the way it makes my mouth feel so fresh and clean. I smile more and feel more confident when in close proximity to people. As we say here at EO Let’s Light Up The World With Your Smile!
Director of Operations
I have been with Essential Oxygen since 2009–almost the beginning of the company. It has been exciting to see the growth over the years and have worn many, many hats. I currently see over all things “production” and folks…we are busy!!! I love animals and have two wonderful canine kids Obie & Zuzu who are my joys! My perfect Saturday night is singing karaoke and playing Texas Hold’em with my close friends. Being of service and giving back to the community is an integral part of my life—-and am involved in various community organizations that serve the greater Los Angeles area on an ongoing basis.
A native Californian, Erin has a passion for the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle. Not a single day goes by that you will not find this fitness lover at the gym at 5:00 am working hard. She’s a certified meditation teacher and is an exceptional gourmet cook. As a proper Sonoma County citizen, you can find her on many a weekend volunteering at food and wine events. Incredibly dedicated and loyal to her work and friends, you can always count on Erin.
Emmi lives in Sun Valley, Idaho with her Australian Shepherd – Husky mix Professor Charlie Bandicoot. She enjoys all things outdoors, especially hiking, rock climbing, skiing, boating, and fishing. You can usually find her cooking, checking out mountains and beaches wherever she is adventuring, or watering her garden.
30 years as an accounting professional working with small businesses to help them reach their true potential. Favorite place the Beach, Pets: “I am trying to convince Emmi’s dog Charlie to come live with me. we recently adopted a Cat named Phebe, (her name means Goddess of the Hunt and Moon)”. Spirit Animal; Wolverine. The rest shall remain a mystery.
Krista enjoys assisting others, being organized, hiking, good health, and learning about people (especially with the Enneagram personality system). “At best, we’re here to help each other by doing what we love and are good at – while enjoying life in a healthy way.” For her, Essential Oxygen has great values and products. She loves the Brushing Rinse mouthwash, and uses the Hydrogen Peroxide for cleaning vegetables, fruits, doorknobs, countertops, and her cell phone. Cleanliness is good!
William is a Southern Cali Native. He enjoys listing to music, watching movies and playing video games. He has been with Essential Oxygen for 2 years as the Shipper/Receiver, but one of his most favorite pass times is observing people in public from afar of course. (Is that weird??) His philosophy: Live life one day at a time, you never know what’s gonna happen tomorrow. His spirit animal is The Crow.
I am fortunate to be working at Essential Oxygen from good ole nepotism. Kate is my aunt by marriage and she asked me if I would like to use my business skills on something new. I owned an insurance agency for 13 years, then I got into the deli business and have been doing that for 9 years. I also recently took over a failing local grocery store and have seen it into prosperity. I enjoy being busy and playing with numbers, so I thought, why not, when Kate asked me to CFO her up and coming natural company. The spare time I have, is devoted to tennis. Whether it be playing or coaching, it’s all the same to me. Getting kids to enjoy the sport that has brought me so much joy over the past 25 years always puts a smile on my face.

Her favorite vacation spot is anywhere near a beach away from a phone, listening to classical and jazz music.
