Daina Slekys Trout, MS, MPH
Daina Slekys Trout is co-founder and CEO of Health-Ade. Daina has been making (and drinking) kombucha long before starting this business, and her recipe has been the foundation behind Health-Ade’s brew. With a background in nutrition and strong love for good food, Daina has always been seriously dedicated to making sure Health-Ade uses the best ingredients and most natural processes. As CEO, Daina’s charged with leading the growing Health-Ade family to the 3 founders’ vision—to make the best tasting and highest quality kombucha you can buy. She thinks the keys to Health-Ade’s success will be 1) never compromising quality, no matter how easy it seems and 2) hiring A-players that work smarter than most and have fun. Prior to starting Health-Ade, Daina worked in nutrition, sales, and change management. She received her BS from Georgetown University in Washington D.C., and two masters degrees (in Nutritional Biochem and Public Health) from Tufts University in Boston. When not giving her heart and soul to Health-Ade, she is hanging with her friends and family (that includes her husband, co-founder Justin Trout and best friend, co-founder Vanessa Dew), drastically changing her hair-do, or practicing yoga! Favorite Health-Ade Flavor: Pomegranate. Or maybe it's Pink Lady Apple.
