Favorite Mamma Chia Flavor: Coconut Mango Vitality Beverage or Apple Cinnamon Chia Squeeze
Bio: I was born and raised in rural PA amongst farms – my neighbors were mostly cows and chickens. So I always grew up with an appreciation for what the land offers and all things natural. I am now married to the best thing to ever exist in my life, my husband Aaron, and while our home base is currently in NJ, we are really just having fun and exploring/doing anything a car or plane can take us to. When I am not spreading the magic of Mamma Chia, I am either adventuring with Aaron or we are dreaming of what our next adventure will be. And I have an outy belly button that I call my spaghetti-O.. that’s kind of interesting!

We are overjoyed to announce our New Jersey superstar and September 2013 Ambassador of the Month, Aly Courain! We can always rely on Aly to step up to the plate and we love her contagious enthusiasm and passion! When Aly isn’t warming hearts at a Mamma Chia demo or event, you can find her outside biking, running, skiing hiking, kayaking… you name it! She also loves photography, cleaning (even though she’s embarrassed to admit it) and going on exciting adventures with her husband Aaron.

From all of us at Mamma Chia, we are so grateful to have you on the team, Aly! Thank you for all that you do!
