Our Founder

Saori Okada

Saori Okada_Mogami Founder

A New Yorker's mind with a Japanese soul on a mission to empower your holistic wellbeing.

Saori's passion for health and wellness started at a young age, coming from a family of healthcare professionals. After overcoming her own "unhealthy obsession to be healthy", which Saori transparently shares in her narrative memoir, "Until the Death of Me: A 15-year Eating Disorder Recovery Journey", Saori realised that one's health went beyond their body.

Her interest led her to pursue holistic wellness, where she studied to become a Certified Transformation Nutrition Coach (CTNC) at the Institute of Transformational Nutrition (ITN) in the U.S.
She has since combined her cultural upbringing of Japanese wellness with her professional background to launch Mogami Ltd. in London, UK.
Saori believes that nothing is more important than our health and well-being. Her approach focuses on decluttering one's lifestyle and simplifying wellness. Mogami focuses on everyday lifestyle design based on five Japanese cultural concepts that will empower individuals for longevity.

Saori holds a B.S. in Commerce from the McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia (USA). Her previous work history includes 7+ years working in the marketing & media analytics industry in New York City, USA and Toronto, Canada. She served as the Director of Customer Success and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

Saori's Journey

Until the Death of Me is a narrative memoir that follows the innocent beginnings of the author's eating disorder in adolescence and the 15 years of pain, suffering, self-discovery, and ultimately self-love that followed. The title, Until the Death of Me, was how Saori viewed her eating disorder. She was planning on taking her eating disorder secret with her to the grave. The anxiety, shame, and sheer panic with the thought of someone finding out about her “secret” were debilitating. Powered by reflection points and an undeniably authentic voice, Until the Death of Me, takes you into the mind, body, and soul of an individual evolving into her own to truly overcome her eating disorder.
