It Starts From the Top
At the age of 21, I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The disease prevented me from doing the simplest tasks like walking, bathing, and feeding myself. Thankfully after several years of extensive treatments, I beat the disease. During this near death experience I began to look at areas that I could improve to give myself the best chance for living disease free. Changing my diet and paying close attention to the ingredients in our food became an important foundation to stay disease free and to inspire me to help others.
My career in the food industry began at Freshii as the Director of Operations and later as Vice President of Purchasing & Product Innovation where we managed over $10 million in global purchases annually. The experience I gained at Freshii combined with the growing demand for healthy snack options drove me to start my own company. Today Mindful Snacks is a leading full service provider of healthy snacks for offices in Canada.
