Noelle Katai is the Founder and President, of Vim Essentials, Inc. Noelle, a Certified Aromatherapist, has been evolving her senses since she was born, and loves all things aromatic. She has had an obsession for concocting potions and products since she was three, and has been cooking, blending and mixing ever since. She also recalls pestering her mother daily until she would buy her a Barbie Perfume Maker! Between the blending of spices in the kitchen and fragrance creation and perfumery, Noelle's fascination with aromatherapy evolved from when she was a little girl.
Noelle's passion for aromatherapy is in revealing the chemistry of the essential oils, the uniqueness of each, and how they benefit us by working in harmony with the body and mind. Since the first time she made the connection with how scent affects the mind, she has been curious about the physiology of smell, olfaction, and in turn, aromatherapy. Having grown up in Cleveland, OH, she talks about how the first crisp smell of fresh cut grass in the spring, after a long winter immediately conjures the excitement of summertime freedom when school is out. Aromatherapy is even more powerful than that.
A Certified Aromatherapist, from the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in San Rafael, California and member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), she has been studying and practicing aromatherapy for over fifteen years, and is a sought-after speaker, teaching seminars on the uses of essential oils and how they help evolve your senses and can help improve overall health and wellness.
She is also the dynamic host of "Everybody Nose", the premier television series featuring aromatherapy and essential oils for well-being. Noelle takes the myths and mystery away from essential oils, so people will be inspired to incorporate them into their lives…even just a little at a time. Noelle's show can currently be seen on Veria TV– DISH Satellite Channel 9575. (www.veria.com

As the Vice President of Selker Leadership, LLC a leadership consulting and executive search firm, she co-invented Performance Values Assessment (PVA™) a groundbreaking leadership assessment methodology that is currently patent pending.
Noelle has created innovative opportunities to combine her passion for sensory evolution and her business background. As Marketing Director for a small IT companies, she was often on a tight budget looking for an edge, so she turned to aromatherapy.
