Featured Speaker

Trinity Mouzon Wofford



Trinity was first exposed to the natural wonders of holistic health while growing up in the Hudson River Valley. Surrounded by a family who prioritized the impact of natural, well-sourced ingredients and a whole body approach to wellness, she was inspired to pursue a career as a holistic physician.


While pre-med at NYU, however, she became increasingly conflicted by the lack of accessibility in natural health care. She shifted gears and followed a marketing career in the tech world, all the while keeping personal wellness a top priority in her daily life.


It was there that Trinity decided to merge her newfound interest in brand building and storytelling with her lifelong passion for natural wellness. In 2017, she launched Golde with her partner, Issey Kobori. Driven to make wellness fun and approachable for consumers, the brand’s refreshing take on wellness has resonated with an incredible range of consumers and brands, including Sephora, Goop, The Wing and Urban Outfitters.
