Our story begins with our Founder & CEO - Kelli Redmond Bagby who began health and wellness journey in 2019 after her sister's diagnosis of stage IV colon-cancer and the passing of their father shortly afterwards to a long battle of kidney disease. Here is where she began her research for holistic alternatives to aid her sister in her journey with fighting cancer. Fast forward to 2020 amidst the Covid-19 pandemic Kelli lost both of her jobs and began posting video's of ways to stay healthy through juicing, herbs, and sea moss. Her audience grew quickly and here is where she gained the name "Mova" and paired it with "Nature" thus creating what we know today as "Mova Nature"
(pronounced Muh-Vah Nei-Chr).
Kelli's background includes personal research from scholars such as the late Doctor Sebi, Dick Gregory, and many more influential holistic scholars. She also gained experience working within one of the top juice bars in Baltimore City - which aided in her knowledge in the juice bar industry. She has also worked within holistic spas, wellness centers, and the healthcare industry as support staff. Kelli has served in many ways within the holistic and health community and has found a way to connect all of her experiences and expertise into the lifestyle brand known as
" It is my hope to bring awareness and to provide easier access to healthy alternatives for nutrition & mental health through juicing, herbs, and wellness to local communities. Personally, I have battled with proper nutrition and mental health and I want people to know we are in this together. I am no guru - I am just a person who decided to take responsibility for my health. My motto is "As I learn, I share." I am grateful for the lives of both my late sister and father - who were the inspiration for this brand and without them I would not have started this journey or be here to tell this story. I will continue to honor their legacies by continuing the mission of providing easy access to resources for health and wellness within our communities. I thank you all for ALL of your support and for showing up for yourselves by taking control of your health! We got this!"
