We were coworkers who met in an Integrative Medicine class and have been besties and business partners ever since! We’re both licensed clinical professionals as well as students of integrative health. This business is our side hustle and passion project for now, but we hope to make it the main gig someday soon.

Bridgette Diedrich, RN: Bridgette was until recently the director of Transplant Quality, Education and Regulatory Affairs at a major Academic Medical Center in DC. She is studying acupuncture and anticipates practicing by 2022. By then, we hope to be a brick-and-mortar acupuncture and integrative medicine practice! She is interested in end of life care and spent many years as an ICU nurse.

Jess Schmidt, RPSGT, CCSH, FACHE: Jess is currently running Palliative Care for a major health system and also holds a credential in Clinical Sleep Health. She is also going back to school for Integrative Health and Wellness Coaching. She is past-president of the International sleep technologist credentialing agency (, and has an extensive background in sleep medicine and medical practice management.
