Levei TaulaOwner of Afi Auro LLC
Levei Taula is a California native, raised in Oakland by her father and stepmother. She moved to Traverse City, Michigan in 2012. She attended San Francisco State University for 2 years before transferring to Carrington College to complete an Associate of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. She worked as a veterinary technician for 7 years before moving to Michigan where she made a career change into working for a holistic functional medicine clinic at Michigan Health & Wellness. She is a Functional Medicine Certified Health and Wellness Coach. She created her own company, Afi Auro, which means "golden fire" in the Samoan language, in February 2022. This company was created around its flagship product, The Way Home Journal, which is a self-reflection journal that aims to help the user align their body, mind, and soul, as well as to focus on their dreams and purpose. When she isn’t working to help others, she likes to be hiking outdoors exploring this beautiful earth and its natural resources, and she enjoys spending her time with her young daughter and son. Her passions are the power of positive thinking, functional medicine, fitness, and learning through gratitude and reflection. In 2019, she had the honor of speaking with members of the organization Church Women United and Save a Life foundation at an event called, ‘Who Is My Neighbor?’ which brought speakers from around the country, including faith-based leaders, addiction policymakers, women’s advocacy leaders and local law enforcement, to sit down as a team. Their mission was to figure out ways to combat a growing concern within addiction and recovery. That same year she also had the honor of speaking at a meeting for Families Against Narcotics at the Central United Methodist Church in Traverse City, Michigan about how The Way Home Journal can help others overcome addiction and fuel the passion for leading a more productive and fulfilling life.
