099: Taking a leap with Daina Trout, Senior Mission Officer and Co-founder of Health-Ade Kombucha

Heres a little bit well-nigh Daina if youre not familiar with her:

Daina Trout co-founded Health-Ade Kombucha in 2012 slantingly her husband, Justin Trout, and weightier friend, Vanessa Dew. Since the beginning, the trio has been single-minded to brewing the weightier tasting and highest quality kombucha on the market.

Trout first learned how to mash kombucha during her tenure at Tufts University, where she earned her Masters degrees both in Nutrition and Public Health  after receiving her BS from Georgetown University. During that time, she moreover ripened her personal philosophy that health is less well-nigh science, and increasingly well-nigh what makes you finger good and happy. After graduation, Trout moved to Los Angeles to  accept a position working in pharmaceuticals but unfurled to cultivate an interest in holistic and real supplies that fuels a hard-working lifestyle. Trout funneled this energy into an entrepreneurship club she worked with Justin and Vanessa to explore ways they could combine their diverse backgrounds into a successful merchantry venture; the result, Health-Ade.

Trusting what soon became the companys motto to follow your gut, Trout and her cofounders quit their jobs to focus on Health-Ade full time, brewing kombucha in her suite closet and selling bottles at a local LA farmers market. Over the undertow of  the last nine years, Trout has nurtured what started as a small production and niche  product into what has wilt a national trademark that is sold at 45,000 grocery stores and  health supplies markets nationwide, including major retailers like Target, Whole Foods and  Costco. Today, Health-Ade is currently the fastest growing trademark in its category for  three years in a row and is projected to significantly expand its merchantry nationwide  each year under her leadership as Senior Mission Officer.

In 2019, Daina was included on Incs Female Founder 100 list and was moreover named BevNets Person Of The Year. The same year, she was a semifinalist in EYs Entrepreneur of the Year program and is a member of the Young Presidents  Organization, a premier polity of senior executives from virtually the world. In 2020,  Daina was highlighted on Entrepreneurs 100 Powerful Women list, and was a full-length  guest on NPRs How I Built This. When Trout is not tirelessly working to bring kombucha to every fridge in America, she is spending time with her husband and two  sons, traveling, adventuring, cooking and enjoying outdoor life.
