We have a couple new faces here at the Coconut Bliss offices, and we’d like to take this week’s blog to introduce you to Christina, our new Demonstration Coordinator.
Christina started in October, and has been a huge fan of Coconut Bliss since the first time she tried a bliss shake at Red Barn with the Wild Lavender Blueberry during a hot summer day in 2005. “I’ve been watching Coconut Bliss grow ever since, and am so happy to join the wonderful people and friends who also work to spread the bliss.”
Christina’s passion for good food developed after moving to Oregon ten years ago. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Environmental Studies, with a heavy focus on sustainability in the food sector. "We live in such a unique place and time on this planet, and I'm so thankful to work in a community that supports so many sustainable natural foods businesses. For me, it's all about making choices and creating a new culture that is based on love, creativity, connection, and sharing an abundance of wonderful foods and ideas."When she’s not hard at work planning demos for Coconut Bliss, you might also find her doing organizational work for a few local non-profits here in Eugene. She also likes to practice Nia, hula hooping, dancing, and often is found home brewing, wild fermenting, and making food with community and friends.
