Karen Girardo, owner and founder of Just Naturals & Company in Bedford, New Hampshire, worked in the corporate world for over 20 years before starting her company. Her personal story is what motivated her and led her down this path to find great performing natural products. Shortly after leaving her job to stay at home with her school age son, she became very ill. Her health diminished and exposure to toxins and chemicals made her situation intolerable. She personally found standard cleaning products, air fresheners and laundry products adversely affecting her health.
For many years Karen has held a close alliance with the naturopathic and holistic community. She educated herself over the years in order to help her and her son with various allergies, asthma and autoimmune issues. This background, combined with her corporate experience in product development and marketing, was very instrumental in providing the launching ground for Just Naturals & Company.
Karen’s passion drove the research and found the resources needed to begin her business. She was determined to develop a line of natural products that performed, looked and smelled great, while providing extensive education to her customer base.
