Athena Perrakis, known as The Sage Goddess, is the founder and CEO of Sage Goddess, the largest online metaphysics store. It offers metaphysics instruments - such as crystals, candles, smudge bundles and ritual texts - as well as online classes and a metaphysical library. She has published several books on aromatherapy, chakras, and crystal lore.
She holds a Ph.D from the University of Southern California in educational leadership. She was working as a university professor, and then as a corporate consultant, but left her career in 2011 after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and dedicated herself entirely to Sage Goddess.
Her Etsy shop was the first online metaphysical storefront to reach the Top 10 stores in the worldwide handmade category.
She and her husband David have two children, born in 2007 and 2009.
