Tell us about your business, how did you get started?

 I started making granola for my daughter, Ella, almost five years ago, which lead to goodie bags at her 2nd birthday. After seeing a need for my goodies, I started the LLC in March ‘14. 


How long have you been in business?

Over 4 years!


What is your favorite part of running your own business?

Being the boss and making my own schedule, so I can maximize time with my family. 


Where do you get your inspiration from?

My parents are very strong, independent role models and my Dad has owned several businesses. Ella continues to be my ultimate inspiration, because I want her to know she can do and be anything she wants to. 


What are some of your favorite local businesses?

I’m vegan foodie and absolutely adore EMC, Harvest Market, Sidewinder, Our Harvest Cooperative, Melt, Grateful Grahams, Kitchen Factory, Ohio Valley Food Connection, Happy Chicks, Nija Foods, The Healing Kitchen, Five One Three Bagels and Harmony Plant Fare. Some of my non-food favorites are Wooden Lion Toy Co., McHarper Manor, Becca’s Blues, Flower & Earth Soaps, and The Play Library.


Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Nationwide exposure with a team helping me achieve my goals.
