Charisse Marei is an Eco-Conscious Lifestyle Expert whose passion for empowering people to embrace joy, beauty, and well-being comes to life in her work as an eco-conscious interior designer, author, consultant, and inspirational speaker.
A lifelong love of uplifting spaces inspired by and in harmony with nature led Charisse to pursue both a career in interior design, healthy buildings, and the study of natural modalities. As a pioneer in the field of eco-conscious living, Charisse is passionate about helping people transform their lives and the places they live, work, and play.
Whether she is consulting on the design of a holistic bedroom, incorporating the energetic principles of clutter-free living into a home office, creating a new eco-friendly product, or sharing her message with readers and audiences around the world, Charisse finds purpose and delight in being a catalyst for transformation. Using her signature framework of release, renew, revitalize—the “3Rs”—Charisse’s mission is to give people the tools they need to trade toxic for tranquil, clutter for clarity, and hazard for health.
Charisse earned her B.S in Interior Design from Philadelphia University and is a certified Professional Building Biology Environmental Consultant (BBEC) through the Building Biology Institute where she studied the science of healthy buildings, green design, eco-consultancy, and sustainable design. She is a graduate of the Young Living Natural Remedies and Beauty Schools and has completed studies at the NY School of Feng Shui, Graceful Lifestyles and Green Irene.
In the course of her career, Charisse has brought her expertise and creative flair to eco-conscious interior design for homes, workplaces, and even aircraft. Today her successful boutique consultancy, Charisse Marei, serves as the headquarters for her multifaceted mission to infuse light and loveliness into everyday life for the home, people, pets, and planet.
Charisse’s frequent media appearances include being a featured speaker on Cheddar TV, PCTV Network, Run With It, a Running, Fitness, Health and Lifestyle program, as well as the Doctor Health Radio Podcast with Dr. Snow and the Health Pro Radio podcast with Robyn Caruso. She’s been a guest on WCHE 1520 and Let’s Talk with Claudine Wolk on WDVR 89.7, and is featured in publications including Grand Magazine and Chester County Magazine.
An author and illustrator, Charisse published the first volume in her One Room at a Time Series, The Bathroom, in 2018 along with the journal-sketchbook A Timeless Keepsake. She followed this with her groundbreaking interactive guide, Eco-Conscious Home: Creating a Healthy Lifestyle in Your Heart & Home in 2019. Her next book, Eco-Conscious Home for Breathe-able Clean, will launch in 2020.
Charisse complements her writing with speaking engagements at venues ranging from the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and the SIM Technology Summit to Park Lane, the Holistic Light Expo, and Book Revue in NYC.
She is also the creator of ChaCha intention bracelets, and a specialty line of eco-friendly home products for easy, healthy, happy living.
Charisse lives in Chester County, PA with her husband, Dr. Drew, and their bichon frise Ginger, whose small size doesn’t keep her from filling every room of the house with joy.
