Community/Brand Ambassadors

Our Buddha Brands brand ambassadors are part of our extended team of coconut lovers. They’re a diverse bunch of life enthusiasts who live the
Buddha Brands way: they live healthy, seek balance and find happiness in the small things, like a day in the great outdoors, or a taste of a coconut-y snack.

Want to be an ambassador, too? Fill out our Contact Form and we will be in touch.

Christine Halbert

A Kitchener native, Christine can commonly be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm or at her favourite fitness studios getting her sweat on. Christine is passionate about green living, inspiring her students during barre class, and is known to always pack snacks (hello coconut chips!). Balance is something our brand ambassadors practice and preach in all aspects of life.

She loves to share her favourite finds and recipes via Instagram. Moreover, she believes leading a clean and healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated with the right support and mindset.

Christina Schmidt

Christina is our lifestyle guru. She loves everything from food to fashion to fitness. Not only is she an amazing mom to son, Orlando, she is on her way to becoming a certified Holistic Health Coach!

Christina shares her passion for healthy eating on her Instagram page and is the happiest when she is sweating in a yoga class or relaxing in her special bubble bath: a few drops of lavender oil, a scoop of coconut oil and a handful of Himalayan rock salt (Brand Ambassadors approved!)

Cassandra Kelln

She likes sharing her experience to help others. As a Holistic Nutritionist and recipe developer, she loves the nutrition community she has joined and helped to grow. Cassie loves seeing how many people are starting to take their health into their own hands. In fact, it makes her know she is doing what she needs to be doing. Right now, when she is not at school or working, her lifestyle is pretty laid back. She enjoys working out and trying new gyms/workouts. On her free time, she appreciates developing recipes to use for her Instagram page.

Sareena is a recipe-developer extraordinaire. Through her blog, Sareena’s Food, she shares all the plant-based and vegan recipes that helped her to take control of her own health, manage her pain and sickness, and find balance in all aspects of life. Her recipes are healthy (and often coconut-y) creations that will inspire even the pickiest of eaters that plant-based can still mean delicious!
