Here at Anchored Way Trading Company, we are deeply rooted in Christ and inspired by the outdoor world around us.
Stemmed from a lifelong love of adventure and a life changing diagnosis of Lyme Disease in October of 2015, owner Kelly Whitman strives to create products that are good for your mind, body + soul.
All of the pain from Lyme Disease over the past 4 years, the tears, the sleepless nights, the prayers, the hope, the fear, the wondering, the wandering, the bad, the good, the beauty, and mostly the foundation and never ending faith in God; it has all been the fuel behind what Anchored Way Trading Co. is and does.
We truly thank you for your support of what I create. Founded on God, inspired by nature. Fueled by the passion to never give up.
I am first & foremost a Christian who loves God. I am a mother of two amazing kids ages 15 & 11 who I have helped guide in online home school since 2016.
I grew up in South Eastern Iowa in the small town of West Branch. At the age of 15 my family and I moved to northern Wisconsin to Ashland, following my dads new job at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore with the National Park Service. I attended high school at Ashland High and moved to the Menomonie / Eau Claire area following my graduation in 2002.
I currently live in the Eau Claire area and thrive on spending as much time in nature and with my children as I possibly can. I balance many different things and wear many different hats in life.
