A Lifetime in Natural Living
About Natural Products Network Founder Chelsea Vurciaga
Before Chelsea was born she was involved in natural living. Her mother was a true pioneer of her time and invested in learning natural techniques to provide a healthy start for her child. Shortly after Chelsea came into this world, her mother’s inclination toward healing helped her discovered New Age Foods—one of the first natural living markets—owned by the legendary healer, Hanna Kroeger. In fact, New Age Foods is where Celestial Seasonings got its start.
Beginning when she was just a child, Chelsea began studying natural healing by attending classes with healers from all over the world. Chelsea became very close to Hanna and was the youngest person to attend various classes at New Age Foods focusing on how to utilize herbs, food, crystals, essential oils, energy medicine, bodywork and homeopathy to heal.
After graduating from the University of Colorado, Chelsea worked as a health-focused writer. Shortly thereafter, she landed a position at Wild Oats Market Corporate Office where she created Wild Oats Markets online marketing department. At Wild Oats Markets, she utilized innovative social networking tactics (before Facebook and Twitter) to grow their online consumer network from 30,000 to 130,000 in a short period of time.
Her work at Wild Oats Markets built the foundation for launching the Natural Products Network. Since 2009, Natural Products Network has been a vital source for providing easy natural ways for people to help themselves. Chelsea has appeared on over 100 TV segments on major networks, worked with more than 300 natural product companies and actively reached more than 10 million people.
