OOV TEAM

Ozzie Ozkay-Villa

Founder & CEO

As a professional doula, Ozzie is seasoned in providing guidance to those looking for alternatives to traditional healthcare. In 2010, Ozzie founded Alternative Mothers Group and later supported the opening of Marin County’s first free-standing birth center. As she became more public about her choice to medicate with cannabis, her community met her with support and curiosity. Oov Lifestyle started as small social gatherings, but Ozzie quickly realized what really needed to happen was mass education. In an effort to reach more people than those just in the surrounding 15 miles, she pivoted to a media-driven lifestyle brand. Oov publishes relatable and informative content through their website as well as their digital and print magazine. Ozzie is a natural community builder who believes by creating safe spaces and fostering positive dialogue, we can celebrate non-conventional health and lifestyle decisions.
