I was born and raised alongside 6 siblings in the US Virgin Islands. In my teenage years, I endured and survived a brain tumor. Discovering life’s finiteness through this experience forever shaped my perspective and motivations. It became important for me to live a “big” life by savoring life’s moments - the sad, happy, serendipitous and intentional moments - and to strive for big accomplishments and new experiences no matter the difficulty. Most importantly, I became motivated to help others get the most out of their lives as well. After high school, I attended Baylor University as a student-athlete, which solidified my work ethic and my passion for athletics. Today, I make a positive impact through my food business by providing people with convenient access to natural, research-based ingredients that help them perform at their best through healthy, fun-to-eat snacks.
