What do you love about your business and industry?

Everyone loves food so its a fun industry full of smart creative people

Tell us what inspires you.

Im inspired by helping people have access to a healthier lifestyle

What advice do you have for other creatives and entrepreneurs?

Don't stop. Keep creating.

What is something surprising about you?

I love knitting and I have an irrational fear of things touching my feet.

What is the most common question you get about you and your business?

"Why soup????"

Tell us about your process for making and creating.

I love traveling - eating in different countries and experiencing local foods. Featuring international flavors is what inspires my cooking and creating.

Name a local maker that you're inspired by.

Farmers's Fridge - its just so smart, I love how they completely are turning the idea of vending machines on its head

What is the best advice you've ever been given and how has it shaped your business?

Don't quit. The life of an entrepreneur who is growing a new brand has many challenges and definitely isn't for the thin skinned - remembering to keep persevering has helped me get through some of the toughest lows.

What's your favorite soup flavor?

Most asked question! I personally love greens but I created a wide range of flavors to ensure that everyone would have a favorite.

Best piece of press?

A quick spot on the TODAY show - the power of TV is amazing and really helped expose us quickly to a broad audience.
