Mindi Getz


Mindi grew up in the northwestern corner of Kansas -- a self-proclaimed landlocked sea lover. She travels as often as possible with her favorite sidekick and smoothie-loving daughter, Eden.  Mindi studied photojournalism in college before turning to fine art.  


All along the way, she gathered a collection of certifications in various healing modalities. Book editing fell in her lap to fill gaps in her own creative expression and budget when her daughter was a toddler. If she is not helping someone rewrite their story of health, you'll find her reading something non-fiction, like sourdough recipes or quantum physics.
