The People Behind The Changing Pads May 31, 2017 06:44
Have you met us yet?
The people behind the high-quality, 100% organic cotton, super soft and versatile baby changing pads that you all love are Sarah and Cora.
We both love kids and strive to be eco-friendly in every way possible, and that includes being vegetarian and being really good at recycling! Cousins living on opposite sides of the continent, Piperoos has helped us get closer as we work together on a project that lights us both up!
We'd love to introduce ourselves:
Sarah Masterson, Founder
Hi! Sarah here. What's the most important thing I've ever done? Become a mom. Lots of people do it, so maybe sometimes it loses it's luster, but to me it's truly an amazing thing. I am so excited to get up each morning and snuggle my daughter. She starts off my day in just the right way and puts a smile on my face.
Most days our family transitions from morning snuggles and breakfast to the balancing act that includes family time, professional careers, entrepreneurship, the outdoors, fitness, friends, and puppy love.
Here's a little more detail on the career piece... I started my career in financial services, and then pursued an MBA in international business. After graduation I went to work in management consulting for a number of years. I still work for a professional services firm, but these days when I'm not focused on Piperoos, I work as part of the go-to-market operations team. My 12 years in professional services has allowed me to see how lots of different businesses are run. This combined with the influence of my MBA program had me itching to start my own business, and voilà Piperoos!
Cora Loomis, Operations Leader
I'm Cora, a fun-loving, swing-dancing, outdoorsy, Registered Dietitian living and working in Québec, Canada. Passionate about family and excited to be a someday-parent, I am so delighted to be a part of Piperoos and work alongside my cousin Sarah.
My experience as a Registered Dietitian and entrepreneur means that I'm motivated, curious and starting to get really good at balancing work and play in my life! Prioritizing the good things (like dancing, being outdoors, cooking delicious vegetarian meals and hanging out with family and friend) is something I continually strive towards as it feeds my creativity and productivity in wonderful ways.
My commitment to being as environmentally friendly as possible shows in my (almost) everyday life through food choices (vegetarian, local and organic), my clothing choices (recycled and used when possible, high-quality, durable clothes and/or eco-friendly materials and practices when brand new) as well as through my modes of transportation (walking, biking, taking the bus and using the car). Promoting an eco-friendly, local (although from afar) business like Piperoos makes so much sense for me from a "green" point of view.
