NADI Ambassadors

AMBASSADORS

Juanita Kendall,

Chief Brand Ambassador

Juanita is passionate about healthy living, supporting women-owned businesses, and advancing social causes that strengthen local communities. She was drawn to NADI’s mission of creating jobs and growth opportunities for displaced refugees, and as the Chief Brand Ambassador she has a direct impact on growing the business and destroying the barriers that women entrepreneurs often encounter. Juanita is a longtime human resources professional, and she oversees the development and implementation of innovative HR initiatives for a major law firm in the Southeast. She is also a devoted mother who works hard to teach her child about good eating and exercise habits, and the importance of supporting causes that improve the lives of people in need.

Trina Bazarte,

Trina Bazarte

Trina believes that a healthy body equals a healthy life. Some of her favorite things in life are the most simple- laughing with her favorite people, a commitment to daily exercise and self-care, and indulging in natural food and beverages from all corners of the world. She’s a longtime fan of all things NADI and is a believer of the health benefits it delivers, along with the important mission that NADI serves.

Jessica Craven

Georgia

Jessica spent two years in the country of Georgia when she was a Peace Corps volunteer. She fell in love with Georgian culture, ancient traditions and beautiful scenery. She was deeply affected when she learned about regional conflicts that caused thousands of people to flee from their homes and leave clothes and possessions behind. Her host mother was one of those IDPs (internally displaced person), and told harrowing stories of finding crude shelter in an abandoned hotel that had no electricity or running water. Jessica loves NADI’s commitment to social responsibility and creating jobs and better opportunities for refugees like her host mother.

“I’m so proud to support NADI, and to know that we are creating hope for people who need stability and a path forward. Georgians are some of the kindest and welcoming people I’ve ever met, and I love that we are returning that kindness.”

Courtney is passionate about healthy living, caring for animals and supporting local businesses. She is also a longtime vegan who cares deeply about plant-based diets and the enormous health benefits of the vegetables, fruits and grains that grow in nature. As a big fan of “super foods” that pack a powerful dose of vitamins and nutrients, Courtney was excited to become one of the earliest Brand Ambassadors for NADI. She is a sophisticated user and consumer of social media, and she and her business partner co-founded and run Sprinkles Creative, a social media agency that works with businesses on brand strategy and strategic marketing. When she’s not working at her day job, you’ll often find Courtney writing articles for VEGWORLD, an international vegan lifestyle publication she owns and operates. VEGWORLD features stories about people who embrace plant-based living, and promotes vegan products and services.

Mike and Sherry

Florida

Mike and Sherry are some of our most passionate supporters, and we are delighted to have them be part of the NADI family. When a friend introduced them to NADI, they were immediately drawn to the health benefits of rosehip and our mission of social entrepreneurism in helping create jobs for displaced refugees in the country of Georgia. Mike and Sherry drink NADI often because of the antioxidants, Vitamin C and all-natural energy boost the drink delivers, and they love sharing the story of NADI with everyone they meet. They live in the Tampa area, and have helped get NADI on the shelves of many retailers in the Sunshine State.

Lasha Tsatava

Massachusetts

Lasha was born in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, and lived in Moscow, Athens and San Francisco before settling in the Boston area. He grew up in Abkhazia, a disputed territory near the Black Sea where conflict displaced 250,000 refugees. At his grandparents’ farm in the countryside, he helped care for chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and vegetables, and developed a lifelong passion for organic food and home-cooked meals.

Behind the apple, pear and fig trees in the backyard, Lasha often admired the rosehip bushes that grew in the hills. Little did he know that 30 years later he would play a role in introducing the health benefits of rosehips to the United States while also helping create jobs for Georgians. Lasha fervently believes in NADI’s mission of supporting community development in his native Georgia.

Mary Jane Credeur

Georgia

Mary Jane was raised in Michigan, and has lived in Atlanta for nearly two decades. She enjoys cooking, experimenting with new recipes and mixing up interesting cocktails. She loves going to farmers markets and discovering locally made foods such as artisanal bread, cheese and cured meats. Mary Jane makes jam and pickled vegetables from whatever is at peak season, and wishes she had a bigger garden to grow more things in her backyard. She is a big fan of NADI’s delicate floral taste, and likes getting Vitamin C, B Complex Vitamins and other essential nutrients from all-natural sources like rosehips. She also admires the work NADI is doing to help hard-working refugees build new lives for their families.

“I love the subtle sweet and tart balanced flavor of NADI, and that there are only three ingredients in every bottle of NADI original flavor. The vitamins and minerals give me an energy boost on afternoons when I need a pick-me-up.”

Pavel Stuchlik (aka “NOA | AON”)

Colorado

Pavel had a successful career as a competitive cyclist before being sidelined by a serious illness. He then launched a carbon-fiber bicycle parts business, and began a successful second career of owning numerous franchises for OrangeTheory fitness, Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt and O’My Buns specialty bakery.

His passion for music therapy and the neuroscience behind music inspired him to become a professional electronic music producer and DJ under the name NOA | AON, which stands for “movement” and “all or nothing.” He performs at nightclubs across the United States, and at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada.

Originally from the Czech Republic, Pavel’s grandmother often made rosehip drinks for him as a child and he was delighted to discover that NADI is reviving this taste of tradition. He likes the way NADI supports his active lifestyle and delivers a powerful dose of Vitamin C, B Complex Vitamins and many other important nutrients for just 9 calories per bottle.
