Gaia’s Essence Women’s Wellness Conference is an annual event held on Long Island New York. The conference originated out of the passion of the founder of Gaia’s Essence to empower and motivate women in reaching and maintaining their optimum health. For quite a few years she had encountered many women who were seeking information on starting and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. In today’s society the battle for being healthy is a very powerful one. This gave her the vision to create the conference as an avenue where women of all ages could come together to share, empower and inspire each other to live happier healthier lives.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Farrah La Ronde-Hutchison was born and raised on the Nature Isle of the Caribbean, Dominica. Known for its culture, biodiversity and large centenarian population, Dominica instilled in Farrah a respect for nature, the environment and the power of healthy living. Farrah completed her degree in Environmental Science with specializations in Biology and Chemistry. After much success in her industry, Farrah found a growing need of wellness education and a lack of high quality, nutritional foods comparable to the ones she enjoyed in her early childhood. This was her inspiration to create Gaia’s Essence.
Over the decade of building Gaia’s Essence she has been featured in the Long Island Natural Awakening Magazine, interviewed on Verizon Fios, a featured speaker at Dowling College, Guest speaker at local health and wellness events in the trip-state, Keynote speaker at the BeauTea Soiree health event in NY. In 2018 Farrah was included in the top mompreneurs on Long Island by Newsday. Featuring female business owners balancing their role as a mom with her life as an entrepreneur catering to other moms.

Q&A With Farrah
“Being an Environmental Scientist and knowing the effects of environmental toxins on our health is the main reasons I started the conference. I came across many different products, which were under the “wellness” umbrella but contained known toxins that affect the health of people, especially women and children.”
“GEWWC takes a different approach to wellness. We understand that being well is not an achievement of a to do list but instead is a state of mind. The fact that everyone is unique means that there are infinite paths to achieving personal wellness. The GEWWC vision is to provide simple and exciting ways for everyone to find their own path to wellness.”
“There is a lack of opportunities available to women who wanted to take time out for themselves where they can feel rejuvenated while learning from industry professionals on fun and achievable methods on being healthy. A healthier woman creates a healthy family, which make up healthier communities and ultimately a healthier world at large. The conference is geared towards finding efficient and effective methods to produce lifelong practices that work in every woman’s way of life.”
