The Mindful MoJo Company
Morganne is a full-time college student, a full-time coach for disadvantaged elementary school students, and the maker behind The Mindful MoJo Company! When the global COVID-19 pandemic hit the elementary school community she was working for in early 2020, her students were jarringly sent home to learn and she quickly sensed increasing feelings of anxiety, depression, and confusion among them. Morganne was determined to connect with her students and make their lives a little better through sensory stimulation & intentional play. A few months later, she expanded upon the idea of making any experience a mindful one for people of all ages with thoughtful, handmade gifts, and The Mindful MoJo Company was born!
