About the Founder
Get to Know Sheree!
In 2006, Sheree Zampino launched WHOOP ASH! Body Butter for the skin. Sheree is a dedicated mother, blended family advocate, spokesperson, cook, fashion designer and artist. Sheree recognized that most dark-skinned people struggle with dry and ashy skin, so she decided to create a product that would offer a little extra love and care for the skin. With her passion for helping others, Sheree saw an opportunity for a body butter made with natural ingredients, unlike the brands found in local generic drugstores. WHOOP ASH! is a high-quality product made to nourish and protect the skin, so that its healthy glow can shine through.
Sheree Zampino’s background as a woman of faith and an empowering motivational speaker, are two of the main reasons why she knew she could take on the challenge of creating a product like WHOOP ASH! Sheree has a passion for speaking to and inspiring women and has toured across the country to discuss topics that include blended families, self-empowerment and healing through self-forgiveness.
Between 2007 to 2015, Sheree Zampino served as the head of the women’s ministry, WOW (Women on the Wall) for eight years at the multi-cultural Christian church, and The City of Hope International (COHI) in San Diego, California. While studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Sheree Zampino developed her natural fashionable sense and artistic flair into a booming business. She is the founder and CEO of Sheree Elizabeth Inc., which includes the popular WHOOP ASH! Body Butter brand. Sparked by a demand from her fans and supporters, she created Sheree Elizabeth Boutique, available online at www.ShereeElizabeth.com. Her mission for this project was to create a unique shopping experience for her customers to access a variety of styles, designs and trends.
In addition to Sheree Zampino’s impressive resume, she is also a cuisine connoisseur. A way for her to combine her two favorite passions: family and fine arts. As a distinguished comfort food cook, Sheree often hosts friends & family at her home for meals that range from Happy Hour tapas style to lavish spreads and holiday meals. Sheree has held “sold-out” Dinner Pop-Ups featuring her infamous mac ‘n’ cheese, coined by her beloved friends and fans as “crack n’ cheese”.
After reading the best-selling book The Secret Life of Bees, Sheree Zampino became inspired by honey as an ingredient for her next dish. In an attempt to research recipes for her newfound love for honey, Sheree found that most of the recipes in her search results were not for an edible treat, but rather recipes for the body. She learned that honey had been used for thousands of years as a staple in skincare regimens of Egyptian Royalty. This piqued her interest in a new opportunity and challenge!
Sheree pulled out her big Gumbo pot and began experimenting with different ingredients for nourishment, moisturization and skin preservation. What started off to be a culinary treat then turned into a rich and decadent body butter. After gifting her new body butter to her friends, family and skin-care junkies, they were hooked!
At first, Sheree Zampino saw WHOOP ASH! as a hobby while her son was in school. But her friends and family saw it as a viable business. With the increasing demand for an affordable product that targets dry and ashy skin, coupled with Sheree’s passion for health and wellness, WHOOP ASH! was born. A simple comfort food for the skin, made with love and power! Sheree Zampino is constantly inspired by spirituality and the natural beauty (outside & in!), which is why 15 years later, she advocates for self- care and wellness. Sheree continues to thrive by spreading her positivity, love and knowledge through her brand.
