Our Mission

Live Well Lehigh Valley connects our community with undiscovered and underrated resources that cultivate healthy bodies and healthy minds. We do this by highlighting local businesses, restaurants, entrepreneurs, and events that keep wellness and sustainability top of mind—and that make you think, how cool is it that I live here?! Our content is for green juicing health nuts, natural health newbies, and everyone in between. Because living well is for all of us, and it doesn't have to feel like work. Consider us your guides.

Stephanie Eckelkamp

co-founder

Steph is LWLV's resident nutrition nerd (although, she's been known to cry tears of joy while eating an Emmaus Bakery apple fritter). She's also a certified holistic health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. By day, she's a digital editor at RodalesOrganicLife.com and mom to Milo, the cutest pup in the Lehigh Valley. By night, you can probably find her eating organic chunky peanut butter straight from the jar, or tossing random shit in a cast iron skillet and calling it dinner.
