There have been many things and people that have inspired me along my journey but I’d like you to meet my two main inspirations….Kaelin and Emily. When I first looked into their eyes….my life changed. I knew I would no longer live for myself…..I wanted to be with them…be a mom. My career, that was paramount at the time, paled in comparison. I loved what I did but it wasn’t conducive to being the mother that I wanted to be…so…I left my career as a CPA in San Francisco..with cash flow and security.. and traded it for one of risk and ah…not so much cash flow.
Our transition began in 1994, when I moved back home to the Napa Valley…to raise my girls and find the inspiration to start the St. Helena Olive Oil Co. We have had many challenges along the way but have always stayed true to our core values:
“good food, cooking, wine, family, friends, the table, earth, sun, eating, dancing, playing, laughing, health, happiness, work you love, faith, respecting yourself and others…giving back. ” St. Helena Olive Oil Co. is passionate about living a life of quality. We are passionate about the preservation of body, mind and soul.
The Company focused on what goes in your body for the first 15 years…high quality ingredients….cooking……eating well and communing around the table with family and friends. With the launch of our natural bath and body line this year, we are adding the emphasis of what goes on your body. We have taken the same care in the bath product development and education as we have with our food for the last 15 years. We look forward to sharing it with all of you.
I’m grateful for all that we have done in the last 15 years…but most of all, for my two girls….who continue to inspire me to enjoy every moment and appreciate what truly matters.Thank you for your support and for sharing in our vision to make the World a better place…one ingredient at a time.
Peggy, Kaelin and Emily
and our sweet bullies…Alli and Bella too…
