BuckWHAT Foods Owner Food Brooklyn, NY
About Leeann
I am a mom of two. I started BuckWHAT Foods 3 years ago while pregnant with my daughter. I have always been passionate about health, food and buckwheat. I decided to combine those three to create a line of products featuring my favorite ingredient. My snacks are delicious, made with only a few ingredients and absolutely no added sugar. They are the perfect snack for the entire family. My goal is to grow my business so that more families have access to a product that is great for them. Buckwheat is naturally gluten free-BuckWHAT!

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I made a ton of mistakes in creating this company. If there are women that are just in the starting phase, I would love to help them avoid those. I have also made a few great decisions, and I would love to share those as well. I think there is room for all of our brands out there, and we can all succeed with each others help. Even though I still find it incredibly challenging to balance motherhood and work, I think I have found a few ways to reduce the guilt.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I am always inspired by other momtreprenuers. On my darkest most challenging days, they are the ones that keep me going. It would be amazing to be a part of a group of women that face the challenge of having a family and a business head on.
