Karen Friend Smith
Wellness Advocate | Health Educator
I am a wellness advocate + educator living in San Diego, California. When I’m not out ‘preaching the word’ writing & speaking about safer products, aging well & conscious consumerism, I am training for marathons with my hubby of 28+ years & hanging with my orange tabby cat – affectionately known as Mr. Stinky.
01. Join my community.
I love sharing healthy recipes, habits, products & resources that will help you feel better, look better & do better for yourself & our planet.

03. Want to get in touch?
I’m always looking for new connections & places to share my tips for healthy living, shopping safer & aging well. Let’s have a chat and see where it goes!
Health Nut + Clean Product Junkie.
I’ve spent the last 15 years learning about nutrition, wellness, the food industry & unraveling the mis-information I grew up with when it comes to health & fitness. I am by no means a perfectionist when it comes to health, but am constantly learning & making improvements.
As part of the clean beauty movement, I am actively involved in advocating for safer products & better regulation when it comes to health & environmental concerns. This includes local, state & national efforts & advocacy. As well as volunteering & supporting efforts with Women’s Voices for the Earth.
Writer. Speaker. Trainer.
I’ve always had a knack for writing. I started off in translation, then spent most of my career as a publisher of community magazines & newspapers. Writing is always at the heart of my endeavors. I enjoy writing in a way that teaches people how to implement something new.
There’s nothing better than helping someone make a positive change in their life. I teach individuals and small groups in custom designed nutrition + wellness programs that are based in developing healthy habits. I also help develop & train new advocates within the clean beauty industry.
