Whitney Tingle, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Sakara Life
A little bit about Whitney…
Danielle and Whitney are New York City-based entrepreneurs and have been named to Forbes' 30 under 30, Mind Body Green's 100 Women in Wellness, and Oprah's SuperSoul 100.
They are co-founders of Sakara Life, an organic, plant-based meal delivery program that sources fresh, nutrient-dense ingredients to help clients achieve transformative, healing and lasting results. Hailing from the spiritual mecca that is Sedona, Arizona, Danielle came to New York City as a pre-med collegiate, studying biochemistry. Supporting herself through school as an actress and model, she found herself caught in the throes of a dysfunctional relationship with food and dissatisfied with her own body. A desperate search for a life change, a more soulful connection with food and her body,and a desire for continued education in the health sciences led her to study at the renowned Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN). After graduating from the program and successfully transforming her own relationship with her body and food, Danielle combined her personal experience with her nutrition expertise to create a meal program that has helped thousands of individuals change their lives through the healing powers of food.
After gaining 15 pounds while working on Wall Street and suffering from chronic cystic acne, Whitney decided to take her health and happiness into her own hands. She had gone to see every dermatologist in the city and tried everything from Ayurveda to Accutane. When her dermatologist recommended another round of Accutane (after it didn't work the first time), she decided there had to be a better way to heal.
She partnered with her long-time best friend and holistic health coach, Danielle DuBoise, to create a meal program that targeted the root cause of her problems, not just the symptoms. The Sakara Life program was born - allowing her to drop the weight and finally clear her skin while still maintaining her busy lifestyle. Their work with Sakara has been featured in the NY Times, Refinery29, Vogue, GLAMOUR, and Sakara Life has been named the #1 Organic Meal Delivery Service by Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP.
