On today’s episode of This is Austin, I’m speaking with Gertie Wilson, founder of the Austin-based, non-toxic beauty and skincare line, Elevé Cosmetics. As a makeup artist, Gertie has transformed the faces of hundreds of people including actors, models, singers, the occasional reality TV star, and many an Austin bride. When she noticed a lack of quality makeup options that were free of harmful ingredients, Gertie set out to create her own line and Elevé Cosmetics was born. Gertie and I discussed growing up in West Texas and the culture shock she experienced moving to Austin, her experience doing makeup for celebrities at SXSW, along with why it is important to switch to “green” beauty and skincare.

Through their network of running clubs and a variety of special programs, Marathon Kids equips children at all fitness levels to complete the equivalent of four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the running club season.

Brett Ketchum is a Houston native and Austin transplant who has served our community as a professional firefighter for over 12 years. On his days off from the fire station, Brett runs a small business called Fireman Dryerman, teaches CPR and first aid classes, and spends time around Austin with his wife and two sons. Brett and I talked about what drove him to become a firefighter after graduating with a psychology degree from UT, the arduous application and training process all firefighters go through, and some lesser known tips for keeping your family safe from house fires. I definitely learned a few things and I’m sure you will too.   FAVORITE AUSTIN ACTIVITIES Zilker Zephyr Lady Bird Lake   FAVORITE AUSTIN RESTAURANTS: Uchi Uchiko Foreign & Domestic Suerte La Condesa Tomo   WHERE TO FIND US   Guest, Brett Ketchum Web: http://firemandryerman.com/ Email: brett@firemandryerman.com Facebook: @firemandryerman   Host, Adrienne Huebner Instagram: @thisisaustinpodcast & @adrienneinaustin Twitter: @adrienne Facebook: @thisisaustinpodcast Email: thisisaustinpodcast@gmail.com Web: www.thisisaustinpodcast.com   Music, SWELLS Web: https://swellstheband.com/ Twitter: @swellstheband Instagram: @swellstheband Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2B6lIM1   Editor/Savior, Kevin Chin Web: https://www.northshoremediaproductions.com/ Facebook: @northshoremediaproductions

One of the fastest growing cities in the US, Austin, Texas is home to over a million unique and brilliant people with fascinating stories to tell. With her friendly conversational style, host and Austinite Adrienne Huebner gives listeners a glimpse into the lives of the inspired minds that make Austin the special city it is. From entrepreneurs to activists, journalists to politicians, educators to artists, and everything in between…This is Austin. 
Julie Oliver is a Democrat Running for US House of Representatives in Texas District 25, which stretches all the way from Austin up to Burleson south of Fort Worth. It’s a heavily gerrymandered district that has not seen a Democrat in office since redistricting in 2012. Julie has a compelling personal story and professional background in healthcare finance, both of which inform her platform and her passions. I walked away from our conversation feeling inspired and optimistic and I hope you will too.    This episode is sponsored by Getaway.

Vanessa Rutkowski is a licensed acupuncturist and applied clinical nutritionist who has been practicing in Austin for about 18 years alongside her husband, Douglas Rutkowski. Together, they own Tigerlily Wellness and Acupuncture off S. Lamar.  We spent most of our time talking about various modalities of Chinese and alternative medicine including acupuncture, cupping, and muscle testing. Whether you’re an acupuncture devotee like myself or a total skeptic, I think you’ll find something interesting in this conversation.  **Note that this episode was recorded in mid-February 2020, before Covid-19 became an immediate concern for most of us in the United States.
