A path to self-healing with professional care

Short Story of Erik and Stacey

Founded in early 2022 by husband-and-wife team, Erik and Stacey Vaughan, Epiphany is a mushroom and mental health company based in Akron, Ohio. While they come from vastly different professional backgrounds, Erik (finance/economics) and Stacey (design/marketing) share a passion and devotion for the healing power of mushrooms. This connection is what laid the foundation for Epiphany Mushroom Company.


With a firm commitment to evidence-based research, industry advocacy and transparency, Epiphany is your trusted ally on all-things mushroom for wherever you are in your health journey. Epiphany is more than just a brand – it’s a conduit for those seeking a profound connection to self, others and the world around you.
