Wiebke [pronounced 'veep-kah'] grew up in Germany and now lives in Oakland, CA. She is the proud mom of two busy girls and until starting Blisshaus was a senior exec at a Fortune 500 company. She loves building businesses - but at heart, she's a passionate tree hugger who wants to help heal the earth so her kids have a safe planet to live on.
As she was trying to lighten her household's load on the earth, she found it difficult to find eco-conscious products that also appealed to her sense of design and elegance. So to have it all, Wiebke created Blisshaus - marrying elegant styling with great cooking, eco-smart shopping and time-saving cheat sheets. She is constantly testing the Blisshaus system: Stop by her house and you're likely to find a couple of friends who've popped in for some appetizers or even a full-on impromptu dinner. Her inspiration is her dear grandma in Germany who did all this with 5 kids—and without dishwashers or laundry machines but with loads of style!
Talk about beauty and benevolence: Even in her days as a super model, Suzanne blessed us all not only with her stunning looks but also her example of sustainable living. Her international travels let her see the world, with its beauty and its vulnerability. She learned how other cultures live with less wasteful habits and integrated them into her everyday life.
Now Suzanne lives lightly in Los Angeles together with her daughter, dog and an entire bin of worms who compost for her. She is our expert on how to balance doing the right thing for the environment while keeping things real as a single mom of a rather picky eater.
You probably already know Laura - because Laura is the most charming connector with the biggest heart who seems to know everybody. When Laura is not busy connecting people who need to meet each other, she applies her talent as a producer to keeping all the balls of her and her dear husband, John's, life in the air. As such, she's our ultimate product tester - putting the Blisshaus kitchen to work with her three kids, puppy and countless gatherings of friends and family. When everybody is at work/school, Laura now drives our business development and sales team.
Rhetta is the quintessential career woman with charm galore living in a small, but precious, flat in the heart of San Francisco. When she is not busy managing marketing campaigns for innovative companies and helping develop beloved brands like Plum, Rhetta meets her friends for coffee, does yoga and hikes the nearby hills. Her know-how shines through in the quality of our products, and much of our process design came from her memories of how her grandma used to manage her kitchen on the cotton farm back home in South Carolina.
One of Rhetta's goals is to travel to the island of plastic in the Pacific herself and report back on why we all need to make every home a Blisshaus.
Nicole is the quintessential Blisshaus momma, marketeer, maker, and manager of all things digital. Her passion for bringing joy to people's lives manifested itself in her launching her Little Idea Shoppe. Here she wows her customers with her style & crafty design skills to plan and make your events, be it a party or a wedding, just drop-dead gorgeous. Do check out her custom-made balloons! At Blisshaus, she helps us expand our brand in the real and digital world plus she manages our product development (just wait 'til you see our app!)
Perhaps our favorite thing she does for us is to share her baby boy Landon with us. He's just too cute.
We'd love to hear from you!
