Ashleigh founded Higher Mind because she knew that there simply had to be a healthier, more effective way to improve clarity & focus than relying on the age-old solutions of overly-caffeinated, sugar-filled products.
Like so many people, Ashleigh spent numerous working nights downing soda, energy drinks, and coffee to stay awake & alert - only to then inevitably crash and feel horrible. It was this feeling that prompted her to explore alternatives, ones good for the brain in both the short- and long-term.
Ashleigh’s mission is to help people discover the power of Higher Mind as she has - enabling people to perform at their best without negative side effects. She has a B.A. & M.A from Stanford University, and M.B.A. from Columbia University. When she’s not fully focused on Higher Mind, she enjoys immersing herself broadly in the world of health & wellness, and figuring out what steps she can take to help people more easily make the right decisions for their bodies and their brains.
Angela grew up in a health conscious family and saw first-hand the power of nutrition and how it plays a critical role in health and happiness. She witnessed her father overcome a rare and aggressive skin cancer through traditional and nutritional means, which drove her to be apart of a company that would help others live better lives.
Angela has also been very frustrated with most products in the market; whether it be too much sugar, false claims or lack of nutrition. She researched for better alternatives to brain health and became a nootropics early adopter, and jumped at the chance to work with people she loved and respected to bring a natural, low-sugar and trustworthy product to the market.
Angela is focused on growing Higher Mind and sharing our story. She holds a BA from the North Carolina State University, and M.B.A from Columbia Business School. Angela is an avid runner and dog momma that loves to travel and explore new places and cultures.
Noah began shifting his focus and life mission toward health and wellness when as a teen he was diagnosed with Sjorgren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that caused arthritis, extreme fatigue and rashes. After seeing multiple doctors with no sense of clarity or direction, he started dedicating his attention to figuring out how to heal his body. Through lifestyle changes like diet and supplementation, Noah lost 90 lbs and his health problems stopped presenting entirely.
Noah’s has worked with doctors, scientists, and businesses such as ALOHA, EVERMORE, Torii Labs and RITUAL.com to create and health and wellness products before merging his passion for brain health with his background in product development to launch Higher Mind with Ashleigh and Angela. Noah’s primary focus is on the power of plants, fungi, biomimicry, algae and the microbiome and sees these core areas as the future of taking power back into our own hands. Noah’s main interests include hiking, meditation, yoga, consciousness studies and gender equality.
