People on the Move

Isabella Walley, young daughter of Mark and Talia Walley, Certified Family LEAN health coach has launched her own business in the seacoast area and online. Isabella (Bella) is a talented and crafty young girl living with Juvenile Type 1 Diabetes and making strides to help others coping with the life-long and often miss-understood disease by many. She has begun her own business with the help of her parents and is an inspiration for many other young children and adults! Bella started making her own beaded jewelry at an educational event by JuicePlus+ last year, crafting a pretty pink and white necklace while listening to the seminar. Someone there recognized her talent and asked her if she takes orders and can do some pieces for her. She said yes of course and proceeded to do so. Bella has since opened her first wholesale account at Black’s Paper and Gift store in Wolfeboro. Locally, her products can be found at On the Vine in Exeter, and some local salons such as Slate Salon in Epping. Please see the amazing story of this young entrepreneur at her website: www.bellasbotanicals.com.
