About The FOUNDER & CEO of OMTurtle
  
Angie Carron, founder of the OmTurtle enterprise, lived a high stress, low self-care lifestyle consequently leading to a multitude of physical and mental conditions. Rather than surrendering to pharmaceuticals she chose the holistic practices of yoga, meditation, massage therapy and superfoods. With perseverance and patience she was able to regain her life. During the process, however, she learned there were so many others suffering in silence... just like she did.​ Compassion led to training. Training led to opportunity. Opportunity fueled passion. Passion led to carrying a yard sign and a yoga mat in Sioux Passage Park. People came.

She saw in her students the same healing she endured during her own practice and by the grace of God and support of her family, in 2013, she opened a small yoga studio in Florissant. In 2014, she quit her corporate job to open another yoga studio in Ferguson during the time of unrest to provide a place of peace in the middle of chaos. In 2015, she began crafting her own line of selfcare products made with wildcrafted, all natural ingredients initially to help students with pain and inflamation. Unintentionally the demand was so great she needed to expand her apothecary which provided the space needed to craft multiple medicinals. In 2016, she moved her small space in Florissant into a much larger space to include a wellness spa using her natural medicinals  for massage and skin care. In 2019, after 2 years of building, refurbishing, and collecting recycled goods she completed her vision of a comprehensive healing environment by opening OmTurtleCafe in Ferguson. The superfood menu is loaded with salads, sandwiches, smoothies, soups, bakery, and breakfast foods handmade fresh everyday with the best, most nutrient rich ingredients. 

Angie's mission has always been to create a comprehensive healing environment that is accessible and affordable for her community. She's extended that accessibility mission into employability as she proudly employs staff with Autism and special abilities.

Thank you for being a part of the journey. We have only just begun.
