Alyssa Kowalski
Office Manager

Alyssa was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. She graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and from NAU with a Master's in Elementary Education. She taught kindergarten for ten years, but stepped away from it to start a family. She now has two kids. She loves being a wife and a mom, and in her free time she loves practicing yoga. She has known Cheryl since the fourth grade and is excited to be a part of the Naturally Balanced team. 

Amy Fournier
Front Office Coordinator

Amy was born in Minnesota and lived there only long enough to learn to walk. She grew up in Colorado, which she considers "home." After graduating from Dallas Baptist University, Amy moved to Arizona where she secured her first career job as Administrative Assistant for the owner of a small company.

 

Amy married her husband Kyle in 2015 and they lived in Nashville for the first six years of marriage. They feel blessed (and exhausted) to parent their vivacious and effervescent daughter, Remy. Their little family proudly boasts an Arizona address as of October 2021. Amy holds tight to many ideals: to encourage people to be better; to care most about the important things; and to lead thoughtfully.
