Jessica grew up in Greenville, NC and in 2014 she attended Wilmington Yoga Center’s “Yoga & Lifestyle Teacher Training” where she experienced her life-changing, ahh-ha moment. There she was introduced to the in’s & out’s of our food system and started living a predominantly plant-based diet, cutting out meat and dairy. Energy soared, stomach issues dissipated and she wanted to share the benefits of this lifestyle with others. After losing her grandfather to cancer, she became passionate about alternative cancer research and how food plays a huge part in our overall quality of life, especially during a cancer journey. To further her knowledge in the idea of “let food be thy medicine” she became certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University, studying under Dr. T. Colin Campbell. She is thrilled to offer clean, nutrient-dense options to her hometown and to touch the lives in this community.
General Manager–Jenna Geist
Jenna grew up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Denver, Colorado where she developed a passion for athletics, health, and wellness. Jenna excelled in soccer and equestrian activities, receiving many awards in both. She graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Marketing and Management. As a scholar-athlete in the women’s varsity soccer program she developed her leadership and management skills as their team captain. During her playing career, she also weathered injuries and began a health and fitness regimen where she learned about a plant-based eating program. In fact, when she first came to FreshVibes to apply for a position she came in on crutches. Jess decided to give her a chance. Jenna loved the family at FreshVibes, the mission, and the opportunity to help customers. She went from prepping ingredients to managing a wonderful team dedicated to health and wellness.
Now, as a manager at FreshVibes she loves working with her team and providing customers with nutrient-rich products to enhance their healthy lifestyle. Her goal is to help her customers live an enriched life, enjoying each day of their health and fitness journey, and inspire them with a friendly smile, and encouragement.
