A Chicago native, Erica moved to Salem, MA in 2010 to study Witches and the sacred feminine in the Gender and Cultural studies graduate program at Simmons College. The knowledge she gained there, combined with her innate talents with interiors, came together to form HausWitch, a company devoted to helping people heal their spaces and love their homes.

Rachel Celeste Hansen has been studying and practicing astrology since 2012, but as her family can attest, she's been a bit of a "Space Baby" all her life. When she's not pondering the cosmic significance of her favorite films, she can be found enjoying the other great loves of her life: music, books, and tea. She lives in the Princeton, NJ area with her husband Andrew and feline daughters, Lili and Vali.

Rachel Howe runs Small Spells, a multi-dimensional brand based in Los Angeles that joins healing and the arts. Rachel provides inspiration and healing through private tarot readings and reiki sessions, as well as her regular astrology posts and channeled messages on her Instagram feed, @smallspells. Her work empowering others to find their way to healing also takes the form of teaching regular workshops on tarot and accessing intuition. Reaching a broad audience through her illustrations that embrace mysticism while staying firmly rooted in the culture of modern design - drawing on the imagery of cartoons, tattoos, handmade illustrations and low-fi graphic design, Rachel has found a voice that is both accessible and aspirational. Whether through her self-produced tarot deck, a hand-poked tattoo, or energy work, the aim is always to lift up those around her, to raise the level of communication and self-awareness, and to enable personal healing and growth to occur.
