Meet the Maker

Hi! I’m Rita – a Humboldt transplant from the Bay Area, twenty-five years ago and counting, with a background in business and accounting. After leaving the stressful unfulfilling grey #cubelife behind and sending off my only child to college, I sought a new purpose to find more joy, freedom and hobbies! My whole adult life had been consumed with being a single-mother, budgeting time and resources, raising my daughter and working to live.

Work and health shouldn’t be on competing ends of the spectrum of life, but like many other Americans I found myself constantly having to squeeze a full life in after 5pm. Convenience foods, imbalanced quick meals, after-school dance schedules of pick-ups/drop offs, homework (hers or mine) left little time for much else. As I discovered the hard way, after years of imbalance, it took its toll on my wellbeing. It was time for a change!

I bought a home juicer but still found that I wasn’t being consistent because the time-consuming prep and clean-up, despite loving the benefits I felt from the nutrient rich juices I made. That’s when a girlfriend told me about this little juice business out of Blue Lake that delivered organic, cold-pressed juice right to your door! I immediately sought their service – Phyl’n Juice was the perfect solution to the work/life/living balance I needed, and the rest is herstory!
