Momma Gourmet Chief Momma Officer Food Chicago, IL
About Kelly
After college, I joined a hospitality company running the dinner cruise ships out of Navy Pier. I spent the last 14 years building my career from running the ship, to sales, to running the national call center then moving up as the Director of Sales & Marketing for all of Chicago. In my personal life, I was focused on nutrition and healing my body of lifelong allergies, intolerances and sickness. I realized that the food we eat can drastically change the way our bodies feel. So when I had my son 3 years ago I knew I was set on a mission to keep him healthy through food. I was unsatisfied with the baby food on the market and knew I had to make the baby food for him at home. This was the beginning of my company, Momma Gourmet. I wanted to provide homemade, nutritious, tasteful food for my son without the cost of over processing, shelf stable, preservatives and other "bad stuff." I turned Momma Gourmet into my fulltime passion and career and have since launched into the marketplace. I am pregnant with my second son and I cannot wait to grow my family and my business at the same time.
