Living your best life is all about balance. Caring for yourself and your loved ones can be a challenge with a busy schedule, health concerns, and staying within budget. You value healthy, safe, affordable, and sustainable products. You shouldn’t have to compromise on your values, and at BuyWell, you don’t have to!

Co-Founders, Amanda and Frances, knew there had to be a better way. Week after week they would compare stories on the challenges they faced in finding the time to equip their homes with all the health and wellness products they loved, while making difficult decisions around the need for medical products and services, in certain circumstances. They knew they couldn't be alone. After all, who doesn't want to provide a healthy lifestyle for their loved ones, at prices they can afford?
With Frances’ experience in the health and fitness industry, and Amanda’s passion for using only the highest quality wellness products, they became the go-to experts among their group of friends and networks on how to find the best brands and products.Then a light sparked! What if they could partner with like minded individuals and companies to bring curated products and services together with innovative options for insurance under one roof? Together they decided it was time to combine their passion, knowledge, and connections in the health industry to create a business to make health and wellness more accessible to Canadians in one simple platform. And so BuyWell was born!

Amanda’s background is in Marketing and Project Management. Having managed campaigns for Fortune 500 clients, and worked closely with Agencies, her responsibilities include defining and executing ongoing Marketing strategies and roadmaps, and well as monitoring industry trends in the online arena. Amanda has also overseen the implementation and launch of over 200 Enterprise clients’ eCommerce and Loyalty Programs, working closely with Executive teams and their Creative Departments.
Amanda’s passion for Natural, Organic, Non-GMO, and Sustainable living started 9 years ago when she was pregnant with her son. Amanda’s Mom is a nurse and guided her on living a healthier and cleaner lifestyle when it came to food, household cleaning products, and what she used on her body each day.
Amanda converted her home and office into an all-natural atmosphere and inspired others around her to follow suit. Amanda became educated on the ingredients she was using every day to keep herself and her children healthy.
Amanda’s daughter, who is now 5, was born with a few minor health issues (respiratory), and this helped spike Amanda’s drive to make her household a healthier living space. She became passionate about all natural products and remedies, and dedicated herself to searching for these products, which was proving to be a challenge with Amanda’s busy lifestyle. Fast forward to present date, and Amanda’s mother-in-law was recently diagnosed with a lung condition which increased her passion towards using all natural products and following the latest research available for these products.
Amanda’s goal with BuyWell is to provide people all around the world with access to trusted, healthy products, all in one place. She is dedicated to hand-selecting the absolute best products and vendors to work with, and is passionate about giving people safe, sustainable, and high quality products within a complete health and wellness marketplace - BuyWell.com!
Frances graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from York University focusing in Kinesiology and Psychology. She is also a CanFitPro Certified Personal Trainer Specialist and Fitness Instructor Specialist, with additional training in Pre and Post-Natal Fitness.
Frances is a wife and a mother of 2 beautiful children, and is passionate about her career. She chose this area of health, wellness and exercise at a very early age, as this was not the lifestyle she was raised in. The unhealthy habits she grew up witnessing made her decide that she not only want to live a healthy active lifestyle, but that she also wanted to raise her children completely different than her own parents had raised her.
This passion led her to begin her career in health and fitness over fifteen years ago. Frances realized early in her career that her passion was to be an advocate for all things wellness and she hasn’t looked back since. She’s provided a true example of someone who’s gone on a successful and life-fulfilling health and wellness journey while unselfishly aiding others to achieve their best self. From eating habits to exercise, Frances continues to master her craft so that she can continue to help everyone attain optimal wellness.
Throughout her journey, Frances, a busy mom, and primary caregiver to her children and aging parents, became dedicated to finding the healthiest and safest products for her loved ones. It was then that she and her close friend Amanda, who shared the same thoughts on health and wellness, discussed the challenges of being a mother, educating themselves, and staying healthy and fit. They recognized the need in the market for a trusted one-stop shop for all things health and wellness, which sparked the beginning of BuyWell.com!
