Allison - writer / editor

I have been on the amazing health adventure for many years starting when we lived in California from 2010-2013. We were in a community where health was emphasized, and I really began to understand the importance of overall health. I want my family and me to be as healthy as we can through diet, exercise and nature. Our lives are short, and I want mine to count. I want to be alive to see my grandkids and great grandkids.

Hi, I'm Rachel Shorter; I am Allison Shorter's daughter. Ever since my mom started her blog, I have wanted to help with it. She lets me help her with dōTERRA, Instagram and share my ideas. I have been a ghostwriter for a few months now, and I love it. I love writing, computer coding, history, animals, food, children, reading, acting, and music. I also love speech and debate. I have been homeschooled by my one and only mom for my entire life. I have lived in 6 places over my 13 years of life. I have also visited 20 out of 50 states of America. Thanks for taking this adventure with us!
