meet our awesome team
if you've visited us at Mother Juice you know the heart and soul behind what we do is our MOJU family. Meet SOME of our favorite people here, to meet the rest - stop on by!
Ellen loves everything (well almost everything) about running a small business but her fave part is the energy she gets from working with people who are passionate about plant powered foods, happy minds, and a healthy planet. She started her first business when she was 8 years old -- selling spray painted pine cones (lol, yaaa) to her neighbors in Milton, MA. She now lives in Hingham, MA with her husband and two little boys. They love all things outdoors and bringing the boys to the city to visit MoJu.
Laura grew up in Concord, MA with her three siblings and many pets along the way. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography at Arizona State and went on to earn both a Real Estate studies degree from Boston University and her MBA from Suffolk University. Laura has always been health conscious but 7 years ago had a bad bout of asthma and turned to juicing to fix it. As fate would have it, she found Ellen on Facebook and learned about her Kickstarter for Boston's first cold pressed juice truck and the best internet friendship and partnership began. From there, the rest is Mother Juice history. Laura resides in Boston and loves all things MOJU, mermaids and plants.
Rachel handles all things MOJU- from cleanses, catering, events, daily operations, staff communication you name it! Rachel grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts and lived in Vermont for 6 years where she adopted her love of health food and wellness. Rachel moved back to her roots and now lives in Newbury, MA with her husband and puppy Leo 🙂 In her free time, Rachel loves hanging out with her long time friends, spending time at the beach, seeing live music, walking Leo, and doing yoga.
Marlena is our head chef and manages our production kitchen in Harvard Sq. She is the woman behind all of the delicious raw treats and vegan baked goods you'll find at MOJU. She joined MOJU in 2016 and has helped us expand and open all of our locations. When she isn't at Mother Juice, you'll find her at home baking and checking out the city's newest restaurant additions. She loves street art, funky hats, matcha and patterned stretch pants.
Madison started at Mother Juice in 2018 and is currently the event and catering manager for the company.

Airieanna is the Manager at Newbury St! Her love for preparing good food that feels good to people began in 2017, and then she found her way to Mother Juice in 2019.

Lizzy is co-manager for our High Street Place location. After a long tenure in big box retail, Lizzy knew she wanted to work with a small, women-owned business that felt like family.
