the founders' story
The founders of ALTER native are Bren and Brady Olson. They founded the company to share their passion for holistic health and wellness with others. They work to ensure that ALTER native is a trusted and complete source of holistic health & wellness products and education.
Bren, a food scientist, uses her knowledge of nutrition and food production to develop, source, and market verifiable holistic food and body care products for ALTER native.
Brady is the operations and project manager. He works to ensure the ALTER native marketplace continues to sensibly grow and move forward, while maintaining their desire to fully support local makers and small batch providers of products and ingredients.
After watching family members battle with cancer and being personally diagnosed as high-risk herself, Bren became deeply interested in how food and the products we use directly affect health and wellness. She quickly realized that “It is not only what we put in our bodies, but on our bodies that alter our body’s ability to establish and maintain health and wellness.”
In seeking out products that satisfied her desire to use only verifiable holistic products, she discovered the ecodiva line of care products, which she and her husband Brady loved so much, they purchased the company in early 2019.
Since that time, they have been readying themselves to expand ALTER native product offerings in the areas of holistic nutrition, skin care, pet-care, and cleaning related products under the ALTER native Marketplace umbrella.
