About Malissa


Hello there! My name is Malissa and I am so thankful to have joined Derek on this journey of life.

A musical theatre major, cooking enthusiast, and overall hobbyist, I am passionate and eager to learn as much as I can.

I love having deep, intellectual conversations about health, nutrition, space, psychology, religion, you name it!

An Aries, and an Enneagram 4, I definitely envision a type of life that may seem idyllic or far-fetched to this modern world. I long for a life in which our natural souls can feel at home and at peace. Self-sufficient. Nourished. Thriving.

This website will be a compilation of knowledge and experimentation achieved while in pursuit of this dream. My life will be spent trying to find the optimal path and now I get to share everything I learn along the way with all of you!

Hopefully, you find it just as useful and resourceful. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store!
