Finding your path in life, staying true to yourself and leaving a lasting positive impact on the world.

Our featured guest today is Maya French.

Maya French is a Co-Founder of Koia, the protein packed, 100 percent plant-based beverage that uses natural ingredients to deliver deliciously nutritious flavors. Maya struggled with food-based allergies, such as being lactose intolerant her whole life, until she discovered the benefits of plant-based proteins when college friend and fellow Koia Co-Founder, Dustin Baker, was testing out recipes in his Chicago kitchen. At this moment, Maya realized her calling was to create a functional product that would contribute to providing consumers with a healthier lifestyle. With only experience in journalism and fashion retail, Maya took a leap of faith into unknown territory to follow her dreams and partnered with Baker to launch Koia.
