Liz Earle MBE is our Editor-in-Chief and you can read more about her publishing career in the next section, About Liz. Having founded the magazine in 2014, Liz’s trusted voice of wellbeing wisdom can be found on pretty much every page. When not reading her emails, Liz can be found on her pasture-fed organic farm feeding her chickens and egg-collecting. You can also follow Liz on her personal social media too, where you’ll find her @LizEarleMe on both Twitter and Instagram.
