Meraki Lane is the modern woman’s guide to living a happy, healthy, and fulfilled life.

We’re big believers in the power of self-confidence, and recognize that when we’re not happy with ourselves, our feelings of inadequacy tend to spill over into other areas of our lives.

Our goal at Meraki Lane is to provide women with the tools they need to take control of their lives and feel good about themselves, both inside and out. We provide the latest beauty, wellness, family, and mental health tips and trends each week, allowing you to show up as the best version of yourself in the least amount of time.

Founder and managing editor

Gwen is a professional worrier, mom, and wife with a love for all things makeup, hair, and fashion. When she decided to put her career in corporate marketing on hold after her daughter was born, she was grossly unprepared for how difficult it would be, and quickly learned she’s not stay-at-home mom material. She started blogging in 2012 with the goal of earning enough money to pay for a weekly cleaning service and has since grown Meraki Lane to a monthly readership of over 2 million women. It’s been an incredible journey, allowing her to lean into motherhood while still keeping her own cup full.

Beauty and wellness editor

Kate is a freelance writer and content creator with a love for style, beauty, and wellness. She’s always had a passion for the written word and decided to make writing her career after she finished her Masters in Fashion Communications.

She runs the wedding blog, The Everyday Bride Guide and when she’s not writing her little heart out, you can find her watching her favourite Netflix shows, trying out new restaurants with friends, or traveling the world with her hubby.

Mental health editor

Keely is a psychologist and freelance writer. When she’s not scuba diving, hiking, or taking a yoga class, you can find her volunteering to help rescue animals and providing therapy and mindfulness for global humanitarian causes. Her most recent adventure brought her to Egypt, where she’s worked to help refugees overcome pre-and post-migration trauma for the past three years. While Keely loves the power of the spoken word to help others, she also believes the written word is magic in connecting others, lifting stigma, spreading awareness, and making an impact. With her two rescue cats, she is on the lookout for a place where she can continue to use her psychological and creative efforts to foster positive attitudes about mental health, and of course, adopt more fur babies.

Family editor

Michelle is a freelance writer and digital product designer. As a kid growing up in California, she spent hours reading, writing, and creating. Over the years, she’s had many different careers – her favorite being the time she spent as a nanny. A close second was running her own wedding and event planning company. No matter how much new tech she learns, she’ll always be a pen and paper kind of gal – there’s always a notebook in her bag.  Now living in Utah with her husband and three kids, Michelle spends her time exploring the nearby mountains or staying home with a good book and a mocha. She dreams of traveling to England and Scotland to explore her family’s roots. Her days are spent writing, designing ebooks for her clients, and adding new items to her Etsy shop, Sunshine Five Design.
