Our mission is to create an amazing “whole life” experience and culture that is filled with joy. We are dedicated to inspiring families to eat “clean” and nutritious using Saladmaster cookware as the foundation for positive emotional health and to appreciate the zest of life.

Our Journey

Two personal events forever changed my family’s perspective to life, food and health. First, my mother suffered through and eventually lost her battle with cancer. Second, my youngest son, Daren, as a toddler had delayed speech and displayed abnormal social behavior. He was diagnosed with an autistic spectrum condition. While supporting my mother in her treatment and finding alternative therapies for my son, I was struck by the direct relationship between the food we ate and our health. To heal my son, I was committed to having our family eat “clean” – free of industrial contaminants. The steps were rarely easy and at times daunting. Most importantly, I needed a responsible state of mind. I changed. Before attending a Saladmaster cooking demonstration in 2010, I owned a variety of cookware including easy-to-use non-stick aluminum, gourmet stainless steel and colorful European cast iron, but had not heard about Saladmaster.


The cooking demonstration opened my mind to the non-corrosive and non-reactive nature of Saladmaster. Today, we only use Saladmaster cookware as we aim to eat “clean” while enjoying all the other benefits – fast cooking, vibrant taste, retained nutrients and easy cleanup. Years later, I introduced my close friend and fellow mom-chef to Saladmaster cookware. Her testimony inspired me to step out of “motherhood retirement” and former corporate banking career to assist other families. After more than two fun and personally rewarding years of educating other families, I took the leap in fulfilling my calling and have become an authorized dealer based in Irvine, California. With our growth, we have also expanded into Hong Kong. While Saladmaster recognized my results with leading worldwide awards and certificates of achievements, my greatest reward comes from the growing heartfelt relationships I’ve developed with likeminded people and seeing other families inspired to eat “clean” and nutritious meals. I am blessed by the growing families I’ve empowered in fulfilling their life’s goals, and that both my sons have grown into healthy, joyful and responsible young men.
