Founder & Partner

I am a dedicated mother, entrepreneur and chef. As a child growing up in Cameroon, I ate only the freshest organic foods from my family’s gardens and local markets. Following my son’s birth in 2004, I struggled to find meals for my young son, Jared-Zane, which were equally delicious and nutritious. Determined, I took to my kitchen to create meals packed with healthy organic ingredients—and nothing else. Soon I began filling casual orders for friends and—in 2006— Yummy Spoonfuls®.  was born. I left my six figure job as an IT executive and started the company.

My baby food products soon gained a loyal celebrity following while winning over babies across the country through a few regional retailers and a national direct ship program.  In 2014, I partnered with fellow mom and entrepreneur, Camila Alves, to expand Yummy Spoonfuls® and fulfill our collective vision of providing fresh, organic foods to babies and tots; what a blessing that continues to be. Today, I am a sought-after baby food expert who has appeared on CNN, Fox Business News, Essence.com, CBS, Style Network, People.com and more. I serve as the founder and Chief Yummy Officer for Yummy Spoonfuls®.  Along with my most important roles of wife and mother, I fill my time outside of the kitchen conducting media engagements and healthy eating workshops across the country.

Co-Founder and Partner

I was born in Brazil and raised in a family of farmers.  I grew up with a strong connection to the tastes and aromas of freshly-picked ingredients.  I remember climbing trees and eating sweet mangoes right off the branch.  And yes, there’s truth to the story that I used to bolster my pocket money by selling surplus fruit on the roadside!

As a mother, I want the same healthy foundation for my three growing kids.  When my children were babies, I spent countless hours making baby food in a messy kitchen, surrounded by fresh ingredients and bowls of purees. I thought there must be a simpler way to provide fresh, unprocessed, homemade organic food for babies and tots.  Meeting Agatha was the answer to my prayers.

As a business-woman, I have learned a great deal about product development and innovation.  I have also had the privilege to meet world-class experts and business leaders; I have relished the opportunity to partner with Target on a number of ventures. I pride myself as being a connector – of dots and of people.  It’s exciting to be able to have put all these elements together on my journey with Agatha.

I am thankful to have the opportunity of working with such a gifted and generous entrepreneur as Agatha. Together, we have reimagined Yummy SpoonfulsⓇ with the goal of making it accessible to families all across America. It is our shared dream to change the way kids eat, by instilling a lifelong love for delicious, healthy food starting with their very first spoonful.
