kirsten portraitKirsten Connor:  Creator and Formulator at Flourish Natural Body Care

Kirsten is Flourish’s founder and formulator, with more than 12 years experience formulating natural soaps, shampoos, and body care. In 2001, Kirsten moved to Vermont to raise her three young children after several years teaching kindergarten. Her interests include cooking, flower and herb gardening, and natural and alternative health, but she’s most passionate about essential oils. She hopes one day to be able to distill precious oils from the plants she grows on her farm.

darren2Darren McCullough:  Creator and Director of Operations at Flourish Natural Body Care

Darren was born and raised in Tunbridge and Chelsea, Vermont. In 2003 he began teaching himself to learn the art of dry laid stone, later apprenticing with a stone mason to master it. Over the years he has restored old stone walls and created landscapes that will last a lifetime. When he’s not moving mountains of stone, he can usually be found out in the woods or fishing. Darren is passionate about brewing his own beer; his brewmaster skills lend themselves well to making body care too!
