Natalie - Marketing Manager
Where were you before you came to I Heart Keenwah?
I was the Social Media and Content Manager for AbesMarket.com, where I had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Ravi often. So I was really excited to join the team!
On a scale of 1-5, how much did you know about quinoa before you started here? What's something you learned about quinoa since you started?
I've been in the natural food business for almost ten years, so I knew quite a bit. I thought I was a five, but I did recently learn that drinkable quinoa is a new category - there's even quinoa vodka!
What's your favorite IHK snack?
What do you do when you aren't making quinoa magic happen?
I have a vegan blog called Bake and Destroy and I organize a seasonal vegan market in Chicago called Vegan Vortex. Oh, and I also have a nine-year-old son, but he's pretty uncomplicated compared to those other things.
What's something you've learned about I Heart Keenwah that most people don't know?
Every day I am just astounded at how much Sarah and Ravi accomplished before Josh and I started. You would never know it was just the two of them doing everything for this long.
