Our Story

Hello, Erica here,

the creative force behind Urban Kangaroo. 


I discovered the joy and mindfulness of creating things during graduate school, whether alone or with loved ones. Starting from scratch has been shown to increase creativity, improve mental health, and reduce stress.

After dropping out of the doctoral program in Positive Psychology, Urban Kangaroo is now my full-time positive psychology work. It was a pleasure to design and prepare your DIY kit for you. I hope you will enjoy the DIY experience as much as I loved putting it together for you.
