About Megan O’Grady Greene
Founder & Owner

Megan is a theologian-social scientist-wellness practitioner-artist and entrepreneur.  Before beginning college, she spent seven years working with environmental non-profits: producing Earth Day events, affiliated lecture series, lobbying, and other dynamic awareness-raising initiatives.  During that same time, she began studying nutrition and ‘food medicine’, and bodywork and somatic healing.  Returning to academics, she completed her undergraduate studies at Columbia University (School of General Studies, B.A. Religion, ‘01), and received a Master’s degree at the London School of Economics and Political Science (Social Psychology Institute, M.Sc. Social & Public Communication, ‘05).  While living in London, she cut her teeth as a strategist in commercial advertising, then returned to social awareness-related ventures, including a UN-affiliated charity, and consulting for sustainability practices in the food industry.  Significantly, while still in the UK, a naturopath convinced her to stop eating sugar…  Years later, Megan started making chocolate as an art project, and also out of necessity: she was craving a new creative expression, while her palate was craving a certain sugar-free, yet decadent raw chocolate she had yet to find in the market place.  That art project has morphed into a business, intrinsically influenced by the vocational callings that preceded it.
