Q: When did you first discover kombucha?

My mother turned me onto Kombucha in 2006, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had read about GT Dave’s mother and her usage of Kombucha while battling the disease.

Q: Why did you start your own kombucha company?

Years ago I was trying out various forms of creativity, and Kombucha turned out to be something I enjoyed making. Eventually friends, including one of our co-founders, noticed I was making some good booch, and asked if I ever thought I might do something with it. The answer was, “YES,” and the rest is history

Q: What is your favorite flavor of kombucha? 

GT’s Trilogy and Divine Grape flavors were my early mainstays. Locally, Primal Delights’ Habanero Pineapple is lovely.

Q: What is your former/current other life or career?

Out of college I worked for MICROS Systems, Inc, and then Oracle Hospitality, in the IT sector. Happy to say I’m full time Kombucha Swiss Army Knife as of September.
