  Emily, Second Generation Co-Owner   Emily has a background in sustainable food systems, entrepreneurship, community engagement, marketing and design, and brings that expertise to her role at Cambridge Naturals. Before returning to Cambridge Naturals in 2014, she lived in Portland, OR with her husband Caleb, where she directed a hunger relief non-profit, received her MBA from Pinchot University (Presido), worked in food systems finance at Beneficial State Bank and Community Sourced Capital, and helped Caleb to launch his firm, Owl Fox & Dean. Prior to that, Emily was the Programs Director at SBN Mass, and helped found the Boston Local Food Festival. Emily has lived abroad in Argentina and Taiwan, teaching English to children and adults. In both countries she explored local food cultures and witnessed first-hand the detrimental impact of western globalization on indigenous diets. Emily has a deep understanding of the natural products industry - her parents co-founded Cambridge Naturals. When not at the store (which is rare), Emily is probably listening to a podcast, reading a great book, or cooking delicious meals with Caleb.

  Zach, Store Manager + Supplements Lead   Zack, a Cambridge native, grew up in a home that was abundant in natural healthcare (especially homeopathy). An artist at heart, he has a BFA in photography and has worked in education, fine dining, and retail fields but his true passion lies in homebrewing and cooking. His current goal is to eventually attend a professional brewing school and enter the brewing industry thereafter. A strong proponent of the medicinal power of food, he spent time volunteering on organic farms in North Carolina where he gained a deeper connection with and understanding of medicinal plants and herbs. He is excited to be part of the wonderful staff at the store and when not at work you can find him wandering the local farmers markets or cooking up a storm in his kitchen.

  Alex, Store Manager + Chief of Staff   Alex began exploring natural health as a teenager after deciding to try out a vegetarian diet. This interest grew while working in a tea shop and learning about the health benefits of different teas and herbs. So it is no wonder her favorite department is Grocery! She thinks it is the most fun department to be a part of. Although Body Care is very interesting to her too, having a very long time ago been issued a Cosmetology License in the sunshine state of Florida. Alex's favorite thing about working at Cambridge Naturals are the people she gets to work alongside of everyday! Being able to help cultivate a fun, friendly and team oriented environment keeps every day interesting and inspiring. In her free time she enjoys hugging animals, especially ones with smooshy faces, collecting houseplants and drawing with black ink, lots of black ink!

  Sarah, Store Manager + Lifestyle Lead   Sarah joins us here in Cambridge via NYC (and several years in Maine). She discovered the health food industry in college while working in a juice bar in a yoga center/health food store. From there she worked her way to assistant manager of the store apothecary and studied nutrition and alternative healing along the way. She attended Heartwood Institute where she studied hands on healing and massage modalities and most recently has been working in the spa industry on the management and business side of things. Although the shore of Maine holds a sacred place in her heart, she is excited to return the bustle of city life and to be back in the industry she loves. You may find her dreamily gazing at the jars of herbs or, more likely, neatly arranging vitamin bottles as she finds this quite a useful form of meditation.

  Brenden, Store Manager + Grocery Lead   Brenden's interest in natural foods developed thirteen years ago when his parents forced him to apply at a unique grocery store near their home in Columbus, OH (The Heart of it All). Little did he know he would find himself happily working in the industry years later. After his years as a band geek in high school, he attended The Ohio State University where he studied Communications and unofficially minored in photography. In 2007, he decided to move to a city he had never been to, landing in the Boston area and never looked back. His interests include experimental music, cooking, and bicycles. He is the tallest staff member in the history of the store.

  Miles, Buyer + Trainer | Supps Team   Miles grew up with some influence from his father, a mad scientist who invented new vitamins in the home kitchen. The death of his mother from chronic illness further propelled Miles toward his life-long goal of understanding health and disease at a fundamental level. In high school, he launched a personal crusade against aspartame being sold at school lunch. Miles pursued a self-designed course of study titled "Pathochemistry" for his BSc at the University of Massachusetts. Following that, he moved to Quebec to pursue his MSc in Experimental Medicine at McGill University, where he studied novel mechanisms of antioxidant expression in lung disease. Deeply appreciating the experience of science education yet completely burnt out from academic laboratory research, Miles rediscovered his roots at Cambridge Naturals. You can see him on floor telling you about the biological facts behind the bottle of 'Grape Seed Extract' that you just put into your hand basket or kvetching about the shelf stability of methyl-B12.

  Vicki, Bulk herbs Lead + Grocery Buyer | Herbs + Grocery Team   Vicki graduated from Suffolk University with a degree in business. Sometime during college, she decided it was time to end her destructive behavior with food, and that it was time to learn about healthy eating. One day, she got whiplash, and while healing she was told to go to a yoga class. This accelerated her interest in being present and showing compassion towards people (and it gets deeper and deeper). She works full time at Cambridge Naturals, and on her days off she works for a few individuals; fitness instructors, mental health counselors, and yoga teachers - helping them out with business, marketing and general administrative support. She has a passion for herbalism (super newbie), mindfulness, and funniness. She is addicted to buying books, and really enjoys giving gifts. Also, she serves tea with her friends at gatherings!

  Bex, Events director, Assistant Manager + Buyer | Supps Team   After surviving a childhood plagued by Puff the Not-so-magic Inhaler and Mr. and Mrs. Antibiotic Overload, the fog lifted and there Bex was, growing up in Vitamin D-laden Los Angeles, mecca of the conscious, organic, natural, yoga, juice and wellness world! She tirelessly started using herself as a test-subject, studying alternative healing methods—cleansing, retraining, reconstituting, revitalizing and ACTUALLY GETTING BETTER. Bex’s professional background is in writing, editing and marketing on behalf of brands and projects that improve the world and help people thrive. In addition to founding a ghostwriting and editing business, Bex has worked as an actor, director, yoga instructor, massage therapist and fledgling kombucha company owner. A Middlebury College alum, Bex certainly had selective memories about the New England winters (which mostly involved speedy skiing and fireside lectures)--but she couldn’t have found a better cozy haven than Cambridge Naturals, where she is thrilled to: join a team of inspirational superhero co-workers; fortify her potions, brews and goos; heal her crackly winter skin; and most importantly, offer you her presence, perspective and smile.

  Caitlin, Body Care Lead + Assistant Manager   Born and raised in South Boston, MA, Caitlin found her way to Cambridge Naturals seeking a career that aligns all of her passions: sustainability, safe ingredients and great-tasting food! Caitlin’s love for learning about sustainability and wellness evolved during her time as a student at UMass Dartmouth, where she was awarded a social justice prize for her research and advocacy for healthier, plant-based options across campus. Caitlin implemented a system offsetting food waste on campus and catering to specific allergen and dietary needs. After graduating, Caitlin’s experience as a restaurant manager allowed her to become more conscious both as a customer service provider and as a consumer. Over the past few years, she has developed a true passion for the ingredients we fuel our bodies with and put on our skin. As a consumer, Caitlin finds it extremely important to educate herself about ingredients so that she can share her knowledge with others. She is passionate about women’s health and empowering each other to make smarter decisions that ultimately affect our health. When Caitlin isn’t at Cambridge Naturals, she can be found thrifting (pretty much all of her belongings are secondhand!), browsing aisles of specialty stores, skimming through her massive collection of wellness-related books or watching documentaries regarding health, sustainability and consumerism.

  Nick, Receiving & Inventory Lead   Nick doesn’t like to talk about himself so this is going to be short. He was born and raised in a small seaside town in Rhode Island. After high school he moved to Boston. He worked for 12 years at an art store single-handedly keeping that place afloat. Now he works here and so far he is pleased. Outside of work he likes to cook, draw, and sit next to his cats.

  John, Customer Service Specialist + Buyer | Grocery Team   John's passions for studying literature and critical theory are matched only by his passion for travel, whether it be touring with rock bands, moving cross-country on a whim, or living with a 150-person travelling circus. It was while working for the circus as a prep cook and meal coordinator that John developed a love for fresh, whole-food ingredients and nutrition. This love was bolstered by a year spent living and working in the world-famous Portland, Oregon food scene. Years of mixed results treating anxiety with mainstream pharmaceuticals led John to an interest in more traditional medicines and mental/spiritual practices. He continues to develop this interest in his role here at Cambridge Naturals. When he's not at work, John can be found reading, hiking, and making music on a variety of instruments.

  Sam, Customer Service Specialist | Body Care Team   Sam is a New England native, born in New Hampshire and raised in Massachusetts. Her passion for natural products started with a fascination with tea and its healing benefits. Due to her penchant for experimenting with makeup (on her own face, with varying degrees of success (don't ask about her first blue eyeliner)), she delved into the world of natural cosmetics and skin care. When she's not nerding out about eyeliner and rosewater at Cambridge Naturals, Sam enjoys taking long walks in nature, drawing creepy things, and finding natural ways to dye her hair unnatural colors.

  Heather, Customer Service Specialist | Lifestyle Team   Heather is a Massachusetts native with a BA in Music from Guilford College. As a natural-born creative, she enjoys not only progressing her fluency of the language of music but also that of food, movement, and herbs. She holds a 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification which opened her awareness to the wisdom of the human body. She owes the roots of her obsession with healthy, delicious food to mother, who was always at the forefront of the latest food news, providing her household with the best snacks and unique meals she could find. Adopting this mindset, Heather grew up passionate about fueling her own body and mind and those of her family and friends with the best nourishment possible. She brings this same curiosity and passion to the Cambridge Naturals team, developing her loves for both internal and external herbal and natural medicine. Her downtime consists of biking around the city, crafting herbal concoctions, exploring and supporting local food and plant communities, writing and rehearsing with her band (named Hawthorn, after one of her favorite heart-helpful herbs), and finding new ways to move mindfully.

She was a retail associate for 6 years and a freelance illustrator before joining the Cambridge Naturals family.

And the rest is history! In her spare time, you can find Stephanie painting, doodling, or thrifting more black clothes.
