MEET THE LIVE A LOT TEAM
ALCHEMIST & CO-FOUNDER
I love food and all things holistic health. I have a background in nutritional sciences, but it was through my holistic chef training that I truly understood the concept of food as medicine.
I drastically changed my lifestyle when I became fed up with being depressed and feeling stuck in my old patterns of food deprivation and binge eating/drinking, which were fogging my confidence and self-worth. I saw a clear connection between food and emotions, and found a balanced relationship with food and myself.
Being a chocolate lover my whole life (and eating it every single day!), I decided I no longer wanted to consume any chocolate on the market due to the massive amount of refined, inflammatory, and artificial ingredients in all the products I found. I took it upon myself to create a chocolate bar that not only contains nourishing ingredients but also tastes amazing!
Learning how to make chocolate was an exciting project of its own, and discovering the incredible health benefits of raw cacao was mind blowing. I'm on a mission to share these chocolate bars for others to experience the deliciousness and healing effects of raw cacao.
CREATIVE & CO-FOUNDER
A few years ago I committed to a serious relationship with myself (woooo!! You do you, baby boo). I shed a bunch of old patterns and began to actually listen to my body and MOVE it. I'm mind blown by the way it all works physically and energetically.
As I transformed my health, Giovanna taught me a lot of what I know about fueling with the proper nutrients. When she spent 6+ months crafting the most delicious and smart chocolate recipe, I declared myself her official taste tester. Once I realized she actually created the best chocolate bar I've ever had, I was determined to help her share it with the world.
Here we are, world. Have some chocolate, stay a while :)
CREATIVE STRATEGIST & MARKETING MAGICIAN
I’m a former dive-bar troubadour, with a heavy travel background, an expertise in jeans and a passion for cheese and chocolate. I find people interesting; the behavior, culture and the underlying psychology behind it all.
As a lifelong consumer and lover of chocolate, I knew that Live a Lot would be a good fit. And after learning, tasting and feeling the Live a Lot bars and culture, not only did I gain a more balanced me, but I also found a brand that is genuine in everything they do.
