Sally was born in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to Orange County, California, when she was ten years old. In her past life, Sally spent time as a model, an investment banker, a venture capitalist, and a digital strategist. Sally went to NYU and majored in English Literature, and loves to write screenplays, poems and short stories in her spare time.

Sally discovered the power of ingestible skincare after experiencing painful burns up and down both of her arms. When topical creams and ointments didn’t work, she had to turn to drinking collagen to speed her recovery. Soon, she was seeing results not just in her arms, but everywhere on her body: her hair was becoming thicker and stronger than it’s ever been, and she no longer was struggling with dry skin and dark circles under her eyes.

Knowing how beneficial collagen was, she started suggesting her friends and family to start drinking it; yet due to collagen’s taste when taken by itself, no one wanted to take it as consistently as Sally had.

This sparked Sally’s passion in bringing collagen to everyone she loved, and she started formulating recipes using collagen as a base of many of her drinks. After months and months of testing multiple types of collagen and tasting it with various superfoods in the kitchen, Sally was finally able to get everyone around her to be just as hooked on collagen: and that’s when Crushed Tonic, and her book, The Collagen Glow, were born!

Crushed Tonic is an anti-aging skincare beverage brand that is currently distributed on Crushed Tonic’s online store, Sephora, Anthropologie and Fab Fit Fun. The Collagen Glow is available at Barnes and Noble, Target and Amazon.
