Bounty + Bloom was founded in Healdsburg, California where we are blessed with a diverse agricultural landscape. We curate seasonal wellness products, highlighting locally sourced ingredients. Our hope is to normalize earth medicine and connect people to their health, to each other, and to the land.  Our belief in the power of nature goes beyond what we put in our products. We use recyclable, biodegradable, and post-consumer materials because we value the stewardship of natural resources. Let’s celebrate our collective bounty!

SERENA GERVREAU

SERENA GERVREAU

Serena grew up in a small town in Connecticut. Her family grew their own food, prioritized herbal remedies and avoided chemicals as much as possible. With 16 acres to roam, they developed an appreciation for the environment.

She studied Medical Anthropology at Connecticut College, and studied abroad in Australia. In the year prior to graduating, both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer and died within 9 months of each other. Upon graduating, she committed herself to a career in the healthcare industry.

She started out working for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and then proceeded to get her Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.  She did research on cancer clusters, the doctor patient relationship and environmental health. She continued to work in the field of clinical research for almost 15 years, most recently at Medtronic, managing a study on heart disease.

After moving west, she got married and now has two young children. She completed training to be a Doula and recently became a Certified Health Coach. She co-founded Bounty + Bloom to teach her family and community what she learned growing up, to share her passion for wellness and educate others about the importance of being informed consumers.

MAYA ELMER

MAYA ELMER

Growing up in the Bay Area Maya loved making magic potions with plants and flowers gathered from her backyard. She spent summers among the majestic redwood trees in the Santa Cruz mountains at summer camp where she developed an appreciation for the soothing rhythms of nature.

Maya didn’t realize how much she needed sunshine and redwood trees until she spent 4 cold winters in Boston. After a post college stint in New York City, cut short by the tragedy of 9-11, Maya returned to the Bay Area and took solace in the simple pleasures of fresh produce, ocean air, and family. Inspired by her own healing journey, Maya got her Masters in Holistic Health Education at John F. Kennedy University to broaden her understanding of the mind, body, and spirit connection.

When a family member got diagnosed with a terminal illness, Maya and her husband had the epiphany that life’s too short to not live it the way they envisioned for themselves and their new family. They hightailed it to Sonoma County to raise their children in a vibrant agricultural community and enjoy a slower pace of life. Living among vineyards, forests, and pasture, Maya was inspired to co-create Bounty + Bloom with the intention to reconnect people to the earth and celebrate the power of plant medicine.
