EKS, started as a clinical practice where our founders would see clients on a one-on-one basis. Later in the years, Co-founder Ashley Shorts received devastating news, she was diagnosed with Rhuematoid Arthritis & Lyme disease. Although being confined to a bed and wheelchair (which striped her of her mobility & independence), she didn’t give up. Instead, Ashley turned to her love of healing through Natural and Holistic approaches to fight these debilitating diseases. Focusing on alternative remedies she was able to develop a topical that would help decrease & manage her pain. After seeing the positive results in her own health, she alongside her business partner Tijen developed a Herbal topical infused with Cannabis.
After being a client of EKS’ clinical practice and seeing the first hand benefits of Tijen & Ashley’s topicals- our newest member Natalie Schwenger explored investment opportunities with the Wellness Duo. EKS officially partnered with Natalie in 2020 and a year later she took on a more active role in the company. Her expertise in business and finance has helped the budding company develop further. Since then, EKS has continued to evolve and is now happy to offer their beneficial topicals to the mainstream skincare market. With the introduction of their new hemp infused line, EKS is solidifying their position in the natural beauty industry.
Exciting things are ahead for this team of dynamic women…stay tuned to see what exciting developments happen next!
