MEET THE ELEVAYS TEAM
Hey! My name is Erica Jones. I’m an entrepreneur, happily married wife, mom to 3 amazing little boys and I’m passionate about health, wellness and natural living.
But 10 years ago that was a totally different story.
Eating fast food and takeout was something I did multiple times a week. I was struggling with acne, my hormones were a horrible mess, and adrenal fatigue greeted me every morning.
These days I’m well versed in essential oils and natural remedies, I cook healthy meals for my family regularly, and I’ve switched all of my makeup and skin care to natural and organic solutions. I’m so grateful to be living my BEST life where I’ve found my rhythm and flow – even through life’s challenges.
It didn’t all just happen overnight though. Everything I’ve created in my life has happened over time and by God’s amazing grace.
After consulting entrepreneurs and their families for more than 8 years my husband and I started to build elevays.com. Since we’re entrepreneurs ourselves, we know that entrepreneurial families have special needs. Between managing the household and taking care of business(es) we know that the days are usually pretty full.

Director of Operations
I grew up in a huge Italian family where food was part of the culture. Learning to cook from my grandmothers and father helped me to recognize the importance of eating fresh whole foods. My mother and grandmother were both professional models who taught me the meaning of true beauty and a healthy lifestyle. I aspired to be just like them and I learned to love the beauty industry, fitness world and I developed a passion for great food.
I was a gymnast and dancer for about 18 years, always competing and working hard to stay in shape. After graduating I moved to Chicago where I was a makeup artist doing runway, photo shoots, weddings, and teaching others how to naturally look their best. I then fell back to my Italian roots with my love of food and started a career at Whole Foods Market.
There, I started working as a chef in the kitchen in their main headquarters in Austin, TX. Later I became a Buyer/Produce Specialist. I loved living a healthy lifestyle, teaching others the benefits of eating healthy organic whole foods and the importance of nutrition.
& HEAD NERD
My story began on a small farm in the country, as a wee little tadpole eating whole foods and running barefoot on the grass. The oldest of four, I grew up in a family that loves humor, music, art and the outdoors. Classically trained in piano, I had every intention of continuing my musical path well into college and beyond, but I got sick… really sick. And this is where my life path changed, entirely.
For the next decade I would be fighting for my health and my life, not knowing the underlying cause. Unfortunately my work as an entrepreneur only worsened my situation, as I pushed my body into complete burnout. I was eventually bed ridden for 2 years and almost died in the ER multiple times from heart failure. Weighing in at 75 pounds, my body was failing to function and I had no idea why. I was introduced to natural medicine and nutrition during this time and along with a team of brilliant doctors I finally received a diagnosis of severe Celiac Disease, Hashimoto’s and Adrenal Fatigue. After so many years of being sick, I was finally able to start healing.
On my journey to healing, I have cultivated a passion for whole food, all things natural health, essential oils, a balanced work/life approach for entrepreneurs and getting the message out to as many people as possible that natural medicine IS powerful and it heals.
I grew up in a cookie cutter development in what used to be Pennsylvania countryside. Before there were targets, costcos, and dunkin’ donuts, there were cornfields, horses, and my development.
My neighborhood was its own little community overflowing with kids running barefoot through the woods and racing bikes to the same house for dinner. We stayed out until it got dark and when it did, we pitched tents in each others backyards.
As I’ve grown, there’s still a lot of that little girl left in me. I’d rather be barefoot than have shoes strapped on my feet and I’d rather squeeze onto half a seat at the dinner table than have functional arm space. The only thing that has changed is my campground choice. Instead of backyards, I started pitching tents in far more secluded and unfamiliar places.
When I was 18, I ditched my envelope-licking internship and set up camp in Crestone, Colorado– a small town that had no sidewalks at the time. I spent my summer learning about herbs, gardening, and sustainability. I helped create an outdoor bathhouse with recycled bottles and a greenhouse out of tires. So when my college advisor asked why I was switching my minor from digital art to environmental studies, I blamed it on mother nature.
Over the rest of my college years, my head was buried in every book I could find about natural medicine, whole foods, and sustainable living. After college, not quite ready to subject myself to the corporate world, I decided to keep exploring and learning.
