    CEO, Founder, & Owner Bad Glinda Soap Studio

    Bad Glinda Soap Studio is a lifestyle brand passionate about luxurious handcrafted soap. Inspired by The Wizard of Oz’s enigmatic Glinda the Good Witch and Wicked’s complex Galinda, Bad Glinda embraces her inner Martha Stewart, but isn’t embarrassed to rock out to Stevie Nicks in the carpool line. Bad Glinda Soap Studio embodies sass and rebellion with a holistic and simplistic charm.

    We handcraft all our soap in small batches with the most luxurious oils, butters, herbs, and essential oils we can find. Our mission is to nurture and nourish body, senses, and mind. Love, luxury, sensuality, and integrity, with more than a little cheekiness, characterize everything we do. 

    Sunrise Today & Love Your Local Talk Radio Host, WNDB News Daytona Beach, 2016 to 2017 

    Our mission was to connect listeners with the experts and the resources they need to live a better life. Connection with health, spirit, creativity, nature, food, money and with ideas big and small, crazy and practical guided everything we did at Love Your Local. We challenged listeners to feel “hell yes" in body, mind, and soul so when the world calls on you to act, you choose more hell yeses.
