Trisha’s Story

Trisha Jackson, Trisha's Elderberries

In 2009, our daughter was born in the height of the H1N1 epidemic. Already a self-taught student of herbalism & aromatherapy, I found our family in the throws of protecting our immune systems without adding more concoctions in, on and around our bodies.

I created a simple herbal recipe for our family and began sharing it in ziplock bags full of herbs with other moms during my ‘moonlighting hours’ where I taught freezer meal workshops to busy moms.  Little did I know it, Trisha’s Elderberries first ever product was born in those moments: The Elderberry DIY Kit.

From 2009 – 2016, I continued my corporate ladder climbing by day and my private health coaching classes at night, doling out bags of herbs. I met even more people across the US through my online courses and memberships. Over time, the message from my clients was clear: “we don’t want to learn *how* to do it ourselves,  we just want YOU to do it for us.”

So, in 2017, I hung up my 9-5 corporate heels and closed my private practices, both online and off, to launch Trisha’s Elderberries full time. 

 

An Interview with Green Haven Living

Green Haven Living is a quaint eco-friendly boutique in the heart of uptown Westerville. They are terrific retail partners and do so much good in their local community. Owner Angie Sheu came to me looking for a more “buttoned up” interview-style  bio that she could share with her customers and I thought you might like to see it, too!

    1) How long have you been in business? 
    Moonlighted starting in 2009 during my non-corporate life hours. Launched full time in 2017 after hanging up the corporate heels.

    2) What made you start Trisha’s Elderberries?
    When I recognized that moms felt immensely frustrated that they were being told there was only one right way (or that there were no other solutions) to care of their families. They didn’t realize that there was a plethora of all natural options available to them and that they had free will to choose what they chose to put in, on and around their bodies (or not).
     
    3) What was your professional background prior to this? 
    My background is a mashup of disciplines that overlapped during my 9-5 and 5-9 moonlighting lives for the last 26 years. That life-long strategy helped develop a highly unique perspective and well refined skillset to help my community today. I have a degree in psychology, 20 years in corporate and entrepreneurial digital marketing and hold an on-slot of niche natural health certifications. 

    4) What makes your products different from similar products on the market? 

    We believe that these are table stakes: 100% organic, whole and cut and sifted ingredients. Commitment to being as local-forward options when possible. That making something free of fillers, artificial anything and refined sugars are baseline considerations.
    Our synergistic recipes are top notch because we never stop studying, learning, and creating. We have an extensive network of highly regarded professionals in many natural wellness practitioner and academic disciplines. We employ plant-based and herbal principles combined with food science to balance flavor and aromas with high nutritional impact that consistently supports our clients holistic health needs.
     
    But what makes our brand exceptional is in the areas you can’t see nor taste. It’s in how we operate and innovate. Our entire operation is different. We are community focused which means we ask, listen to and make only what the greater Elderberry Insiders community wants and needs. We employ from within our community. They inform our ingredients, labels, type of materials we use for packaging and even influence how we go to market. We rarely make something up and *hope* it works for them. Instead, we create solutions to problems already know they’re struggling with and they help us develop something that works, each and every time. 
     
    We use a proprietary small batch, smart production processes using unique brewing equipment that saves time, energy and money to creating Ohio’s most delicious and impactful products. Our employees are empowered to make changes and efficiencies each time were together. 
     
    Our business is their business. It’s a beautiful relationship all around.
    5) What is an interesting fact about you that not many people know. 
    I am a happily married homeschool mom to 2 teenagers and actively coach 2 middle school fastpitch softball teams. I can still throw a mean fastball.
