- Joel MoceriCo-Founder & Managing DirectorJoel has been a resident of Berks County all of his life. He participated in a variety of sports growing up but fell in love with running. At Wyomissing HS, he culminated a successful running career by earning a scholarship to run for Penn State and acquiring the nickname “wheels.” During his 5 year experience at Penn State, Joel graduated with degrees in Kinesiology and Recreational Management. He was a 4x All-Big Ten academic recipient and earned 1st Team All-NCAA Eastern Regionals on his home course his senior year in cross country. His contributions as a DJ while living in the track house might arguably be his biggest accomplishment, however. Such is life, adversity hit. With the compounding effects of the real world out of college, complications in the health of his family, and poor nutrition, Joel’s health took a turn for the worse. He was diagnosed with anxiety and depression but did not quite understand how or why. After 8 years of traditional medical treatment with varying levels of severity and no end in sight, Joel turned to a more integrative health approach with his treatments, which included a drastic change in his nutrition. In addition to yoga, daily meditation, prayer, acupuncture, tapping, and belief training, he began eating with an emphasis on local, organic, and seasonal food options. Until all of these changes were implemented consistently did he finally break free of the daily ailments that he thought would be with him for the rest of his life. Joel decided to move away from a career in personal training, coaching, and the specialty running industry to pursue that of servicing others in the food and nutrition industry. Gaining valuable experience in the industry from serving as the Director of Business and Community Development at The Farmhouse Kitchen in West Reading allowed him to help found Good Life Organics with Conor and Courtnie. Joel lives and breathes an active and healthy lifestyle because it saved his life. He relishes any opportunity to educate and promote an integrative approach to health. His passion is relationship development, sharing an enthusiasm for taking interest in others and offering support in any way. Outside of his health interests, Joel is a diehard Philadelphia and Penn State sports fan. He enjoys the opportunity to dance all night amidst a considerably younger crowd while seeing his favorite international djs in concert. It took many years, but he’s now an active antique hunter and can be found antiquing weekly.

Britt is a school teacher at Lauer’s Park Elementary in the Reading School District. She never really believed in living a healthy lifestyle as she grew up eating typical ‘Berks County’ food and never exercised. In 2011, Britt found a passion for running and, within a few years, completed her first half marathon. Her eating had improved slightly, but her focus was more on exercising and becoming a better runner. In 2015, Britt found herself in a very bad place. Her depression and anxiety became so severe to the point where she no longer enjoyed life. She knew she had to buckle down in order to find happiness and turned to exercise and healthier eating to lead the charge. Britt signed herself up for her first marathon to keep her motivation and confidence up. Unfortunately, her knees had other plans. She soon developed severe pain, ended up on a long road of physical therapy, and tried every option presented to her from her traditional doctor. Her depression began to come back as she found herself unable to run and making little progress with treatments. Thankfully, Joel re-entered her life and helped her focus on eating healthy and organic foods. Soon after, Britt found herself buying organic food and becoming more conscious about household products and products she was using on her body. Ask her 5 years ago if she envisioned herself where she is now and she would have laughed. Organic? Too expensive! Kale? Eww, it’s green! Toothpaste? Is that even important to pay attention to? Now she can never imagine going back to her old lifestyle. Healthy eating and exercise have become a huge importance to her everyday lifestyle. She is so thankful for the opportunity to be part of a business with others who share her same passion for overall health!
- Chrissie BifulcoManager-In-TrainingChrissie BifulcoManager-In-TrainingOriginally born in Texas, Chrissie moved to the Tri State area as an infant. She spent the majority of her childhood in New Jersey where she and her sister were adopted through a second marriage. The first experiences that developed her love of cooking began tip toeing on a stool in a white apron along side her dad. Her dad also taught her farm to table vegetable and herb gardening. Sports was an important part of her life. She played softball, cheerleading and was an avid horseback rider. The arts weren't missed as her Aunt recognized Chrissie's ability and taught her how to draw. Her strongest medium became charcoal. She also played the violin and upright bass and was a bookworm who enjoyed writing.Difficult childhood events led to Chrissie experiencing anxiety and depression in her preteens. Still, she graduated high school with the Who's Who Among America's Students Award and went on to complete two years of college.She continued to struggle with anxiety and depression in her twenties and sought conventional therapy. During her twenties she also had three beautiful children Jada, Nicholas and Grace and was married.Tragedy struck two fold as Chrissie's husband would suffer a coma and traumatic brain injury that he eventually recovered from while she also underwent surgery for a thyroid tumor.These events led Chrissie, who had developed a career in retail management for over 10 years, to turn to diet and nutrition and major lifestyle changes. Unwilling to accept conventional methods requiring her to take thyroid hormone supplement medications for the rest of her life, she began researching thyroid disorders and eating an organic, gluten free diet focusing on natural supplements and foods for thyroid support. She pursued her certification in personal training and worked with a small group of clients helping with basic flexibility and modalities after surgery or health complications. She found a passion for running and lifting. Today she works with a counselor who specializes in trauma and healing through group therapy as well as practicing self forgiveness.Meeting Joel and joining Good Life Organics has given Chrissie the opportunity to serve the community in her professional career through the same beliefs of health and nutrition.

Kaitlyn Snyder graduated from Oley Valley HS in 2019. She is now attending Alvernia University for a degree in business management and finance. She is also a collegiate athlete, participating on Alvernia’s Cross Country and Track & Field teams. While she was always active in multiple different sports throughout her life, running was one that she enjoyed the most.
In High School, as she became more and more immersed in running, she started becoming interested in how she was nourishing her body. While paying attention to what foods she was eating and where they came from, it became apparent that the quality of food impacted her athletic performance. This inspired her to learn more about proper nutrition and how it affects the body. To this day she is still actively learning about nutrition.
She is excited about the opportunity that Good Life Organics has given her, to not only provide healthy options to those in the community, but to also aid in her own health education journey.
Her favorite menu items are the “Nitro Boost” smoothie with house made almond milk and the Baked Oatmeal topped with Greek yogurt, bananas, and cacao nibs.
