How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than a year.

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

No, I was born and raised in PA. I moved here a few years ago to attend Tufts University for my MS in Nutrition Science.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I moved to Japan and lived there for 6 years with my sister after graduating from college. While living there, we became raw vegans for health reasons. We started several health related companies: Lucina - a healthy events company, Manna Raw Vegan Restaurant, and Nama Kiss Chocolate (now called nuFudge). After coming back to the US, we restarted Nama Kiss Chocolate in NC where we were living. I realized I wanted to learn more about nutrition, so while living in NC, I took prerequisites for grad school while running the chocolate business on a small scale. I moved to MA to attend grad school thinking I would give up the chocolate business, but I restarted for a 3rd time around the time of my graduation, and I haven't looked back! I rebranded and became nuFudge in 2017, and now I am actively growing! I am also a nutritionist and private healthy cook for a family living in Burlington.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

That I am friendly, hard working, and passionate about my product and company philosophy. That my chocolate fudge is healthier than standard desserts, but still tastes amazing!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Stay laser focused on what you want to achieve.

What’s your favorite book?

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

What’s your secret weapon?

Meal prep! It keeps me eating healthy and helps me to not waste money on eating out.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Be more focused and less sensitive to what other's think.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I am very much into pole fitness! It's changed my relationship with my body and given me strength I never had!
