Say hi to Vanessa!
(otherwise known as V)
She is no stranger to business, having earned a degree in it while working for another start-up herself; however, Vanessa has always been drawn to creating a product that puts health at the forefront.
When diagnosed with an auto-immune disease, Vanessa peeled back the layers of her lifestyle from how she exercised, what she ate, and how she thought and felt about her body. Navigating her health journey became her full-time job, leading her to pursue Oat of the Ordinary with co-founder Chara.
Holla back Chara!
(from time to time, known as Charmagne)
As a holistic nutritionist, and Community Manager for the Almost 30 podcast, Chara spent many hours on the road from client meetings, training sessions, and 6 am flights traveling around the US with the pod. Being vegan, mainly gluten-free, and quite susceptible to being hangry, Chara knew eating healthy on the go was a task she’d have to take on herself.
After sharing her healthy and travel-friendly oatmeal mix on her social channels, the comments, reposts, and DM’s came flooding in.
“I can’t believe I didn’t think of this!”
“You need to turn this into a product!”
So C called up V, and their venture began…
