Kimberly Fe’Lix, called Fe’Lix by her friends, is a wellness advocate with a passion for education and accessibility. Before creating her blog, Fe'Lix, Inside & Out, Fe'Lix worked within the health + wellness space both in traditional health care settings and within the non-profit board room setting. With a passion for advocacy, Fe'Lix has experience with both grassroots organizing and as a macro-scale strategist. 

 After stepping back from her career to focus on her family, Fe'Lix started her blog; which is a one-stop-shop for all things wellness, Both Inside & Out;  as a way to create a space where she could help people navigate the journey to a healthier lifestyle.  Whether talking about the science behind ingredients, clean beauty, or nutrition and supplements, one thing that remains at the center is motherhood. Fe'Lix, speaks regularly on self-care,  diversity, the importance of representation, and the delicate nature of raising mixed race, multi-cultural children in today's world.

Moms, I’m giving you permission to take care of yourself first and then take care of your children. For non-moms if you’re any type of care taker of other human beings whether they belong to you or not, you gotta take care of yourself. Fill your cup with healthy nutritious things.
