Partake Foods Founder Food Hoboken, NJ
About Denise
I'm a Southern girl, originally from North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!). I now live in Jersey City, NJ with my husband and firecracker of a daughter, Vivienne. I'm also the Founder of Partake Foods, a line of delicious, nutritious and allergy-friendly foods. Vivienne suffers from severe food allergies, and when I couldn't find meal and snack options that met my nutritional standards, her dietary restrictions and tasted good - I left behind my career at Coca-Cola to launch Partake Foods.

My favorite quote ever, by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Losing my Mom. She's always been the one person I could always call on for absolutely anything. She's always had my back, and now I see the same unconditional love and devotion she has for my daughter but she's getting older, and it's scary to think that she's not actually immortal (which is how I've always viewed her!)

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

An "I love this product!" moment from a celebrity or huge influencer

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

You only get one body - Take care of it. People often end up in a situation where they'll do anything to get better, but if you would take the perspective of doing anything to stay healthy, it makes for an easier road. So eat healthy, exercise, and don't sweat the small stuff.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

A female entrepreneur recently said to me - "There's nothing more formidable than having a bad-ass mama crew", and I totally agree. I'm excited to network with a group of amazing moms that are working to make the world better for our babies, each in our own way.
