Meet the Beeyoutiful Team: Mary Ewing
Welcome! It’s time again to go behind the scenes at Beeyoutiful. Today we’re visiting with the irreplaceable Mary Ewing.
What are you in charge of at Beeyoutiful?
A little bit of everything! For the last few years, my job has heavily revolved around Customer Service, but lately I have switched hats and have started focusing on new product development and marketing! I have loved loved being so involved with Customer Service and interacting with our customers, but I do have to say the new products and marketing are amazing.
What do you do every day?
My days change up a lot too because I am also a mom of five little kids! Most days, I try to get up and work a few hours before lunch, and then after lunch while the kids are doing rest time. But usually I stay up late working while it is quiet in the house. I am thrilled we are getting an office building large enough for me to be at with the kids. So my days will probably change. My husband, Tal, works managing inventory and shipping, so occasionally when I need to be hands on or dedicated time to write, we trade off and he works from home with the kids.
What can customers count on you for?
I love to interact with customers and help answer questions and even with my slight switch in focus with my job, will still be available to do that, so keep emailing me! I love getting to know our customers. You can always count on me to take your product suggestions into consideration as I help plan out new products, education information on health, and working to make sure your experience in the Beeyoutiful Family is a good one!
What do you do to support your own health?
My health journey started about 8 years ago as a nurse who totally discredited holistic techniques. But my son’s health was not responding to conventional treatments and I was desperate. I had met Steve Tallent in Russia when I was a teenager and reconnected with him and Steph about the same time. Over the next few years, their gentle sharing of lifestyle modifications that had benefited their family seemed to leak into my life too. As I made baby steps (and am still making baby steps), I have seen remarkable changes in our family’s health.
I recently felt like I hit a plateau in my health and have taken a step back, gotten some bloodwork processed to assess the foods that are causing inflammation in my body, taken some time off those foods and added in foods and supplements to heal my gut at the same time. I am feeling better than ever and looking forward to continuing health!
When you’re not working on Beeyoutiful projects, what’s one way that you enjoy spending your time?
I love gardening, spending time in nature with my kiddos, knitting, reading, cooking…..and a lot of other things. But am hoping to very soon move on to our own small homestead. We have dreamed of this for about 6 years and although we are able to do some at our rental house, it will be amazing to have our own place to develop generational legacy.
