who we are
Becky Waddell, Founder
Take Care Founder, Becky Waddell, created Take Care after seeing a need for a healthy skincare and lifestyle community in Washington, DC.
She passionately enjoyed plant-based skincare for years but always found it difficult to discover beautiful, effective brands in one place - so, she created a space herself! She relishes in bringing together special brands and sharing them with her community.
Becky is a new mama to her daughter, Lily; wife to her husband, Trevor; and dog mama her miniature dachshund, Scooby. She has a B.S. in Applied Biology from Arizona State University and an MPP from Oregon State University.
Emily Solinger, Shop Manager
Take Care store manager, Emily Solinger, has been a skin care and beauty devotee for as long as she can remember. However, once she began reading product labels and researching ingredients, her passion for beauty transitioned to a love for natural products and wellness.
As soon as Take Care opened in Washington, DC Emily was thrilled to the join the team as it is the ultimate natural beauty and wellness haven in the city. She loves helping the community find customized natural alternatives for their self care rituals.
Emily moved to DC after graduating with a B.S. in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University. She currently lives in Logan Circle with her husband, Andrew, and Goldendoodle Talulah.
Savannah Kilpatrick, Outreach Manager
Savannah Kilpatrick, our Community Outreach Coordinator, shares and introduces the Take Care shop with the community through events, wellness workshops, and pop-up shops.
She developed her love for a plant-based lifestyle as a child. As a young adult, she realized more than ever, how important a natural, plant-based skincare routine is, not just a healthy diet. She enjoys connecting Take Care and its mission with the community as a way to introduce a natural way of life, free of not-so-good-for-you ingredients and full of ingredients that nourish your skin, overall health, and life.
Originally from Alabama, Savannah currently lives in D.C. with her husband, Austin, and their dog children, Toby and Zero. While living in the South, in her past life, she was a wedding planner, event stylist, and floral designer.
