"Do more of what makes you happy"
This is my story in a nutshell. I was born in Canada and lived there most of my life. I had a successful career in the television business working in international sales, licensing and brand management, but when I moved to North Carolina I wanted a change, and I especially wanted to connect with my new community, so one thing led to another and I slowly started putting this brand into motion and here we are today.
Hele products are manufactured in North Carolina at a facility about an hour outside of Charlotte. I work with an amazing group of very talented people who I am very grateful for!

If you are new to compression, I suggest giving our socks and sleeves a try. I am pretty sure you won't regret it because there are so many benefits...wearing compression can improve circulation, reduce swelling, soothe soreness and aching, shorten recovery time, and the list goes on. They are a MUST for travel, and it is highly recommended to wear compression socks for anyone who spends extended periods of time sitting or standing. Compression socks are also great for post-op and post-workout recovery, and our sleeves are ideal for long walks and runs.
Please click on the "Let's Talk About Compression" link below to learn more about the different compression levels, and I strongly recommend that you speak with your doctor to ask if compression is right for you.
If you are curious to know why I named the brand Hele (pronounced "healey"), there are two reasons; the first is that in the past, the word "hele" was a variant spelling of "heal" (which is what compression socks do so that makes sense!) and the letters h,e,l,e are the last four of my name, so that made sense too.
Right from the start of this amazing journey my priority has always been to manufacture in my home state of North Carolina and source the highest quality yarns, including sustainable American-made yarns whenever possible. I am very proud of this brand and I can't wait for you to try our products!
