Tell me more about who is teaching me?

Sophie Mackenzie is a whole-food blogger whose work has been featured on The Feed Feed, Food52, Urban Outfitters and the Huffington Post. She has previously worked in New York as a food stylist, and currently is a regular contributor to the upcoming food site Nom. 

Cooking has always been Sophie's passion. She created her blog www.wholeheartedeats.com as a place for her to share her food experiments, both successful and those less successful. Her Instagram presence is a visual journal of her vegan recipe experiments. She has successfully grown her Instagram following to over 50k.




Kristine Lee recently decided to leave her "dream job" to stay home and raise her children. She previously worked for a fun and innovative marketing agency as the Director of Strategic Services. She spent 10 years working with companies to develop their brands and implemented marketing strategies. She now spends her days dropping kids off at school, and making lunches. It was a pretty drastic change, but one that she fully embraced. She started her beautiful Instagram and her community has flourished.  She is striking that elusive balance of stay at home mom and creative entrepreneur. 

Kristine is not only passionate about her family but also talking about marketing strategy and brand development.  She has helped companies in the past with this and looks forward to doing this again. www.smoothieburst.com
