Founder | Visionary
Charlotte is a passionate visionary and creator, with a dedication to inspiring and sharing the mindful life. She is a firm believer that life is to be experienced and spent her formative years traveling the world.
It was in her late twenties, due to personal health challenges, that Charlotte had her “aha” moment and realized that we have the power to create our own reality, and that what you eat and think have direct effects on your life as a whole.
This realization lead her on a journey of self-discovery as she immersed herself in the world of natural food, nutrition, and spirituality. She moved to New York and studied at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, while gaining experience in likeminded restaurants.
In 2008, Charlotte moved to Key West and turned her vision of health and wellness into a reality. With the support of her business partner, a lot of faith, and an unrelenting vision, Charlotte has seen Date & Thyme grow from a small take out cafe into a thriving community center.
