ASHLEY MIYASAKI

Chief Operations Officer

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Ashley has spent the last decade in Beijing, Sydney, Kumasi, Pamplona, Jakarta, and Los Angeles. She currently resides in beautiful Venice, California. In her free time, you can find her trying to pretzel it up in yoga, sweating it out on the Megaformer (looks like an instrument of death), or conducting food experiments. She's obsessed with business processes, strategy, and is always looking for the most efficient, effective approaches to solving problems (she's an expert at shaving minutes off of Waze's ETA). Ashley is thrilled to be helping all people live their healthiest lives as part of the rockstar Pulp Pantry team.

JUSTINE HERNANDEZ

Product Lead

Born and raised in Echo Park in a food-centric Polish-Mexican family, Justine is a pastry chef who passionately specializes in bread. After studying at the New School of Cooking, she oversaw the pastry department at Silverlake’s Sawyer, but decided to leave to focus on more sustainable vegan recipes. You can find her baked goods on Instagram at @KneadedFoods.

 

FRANCESCA D' CRUZ

Research & Outreach Intern

Francesca has a passion for farms, food, and friends. When she’s not concocting a recipe all-things-kale, she’s likely brainstorming puns or biking into the sunset.

NATALIE MOGENTALE

Innovative Marketing & PR Intern

Natalie enjoys spending her days highly caffeinated in the hot SoCal sun. Originally from Chicago, she doesn't take access to fresh produce from local farms for granted. You can find her at Kaitlin's house cooking up delectable pulp-infused yummies while simultaneously texting 20 different people at any given moment.

 

LENA BLOCK

Research and Sustainability Intern

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Lena has been passionate about living a healthy life ever since she was a kid, thanks to her mom who’s been juicing, smoothie-making, and creating all sorts of healthy snacks in their kitchen since before Lena could talk. While growing up as her mom’s personal taste-tester, her love for creating sustainable, nourishing foods was quickly sparked, which led her to discover Pulp Pantry! When she’s not exploring the delicious vegan food scene that LA has to offer, you’ll either find her in the mountains, or hanging at the beach.
