About Us

8 the Plate was created by a husband and wife team. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and a faculty member at Capella University. One night after giving a lecture on food refusal, I came home to have dinner with my family and was the subject of my own lecture... My daughter was refusing her own meal! After implementing behavioral strategies to get her to eat, I realized there had to be an easier way! Luckily, my hubby is an aerospace engineer and I asked him to design a product that could facilitate all of the strategies that I was implementing. Fast forward many late nights and countless hours later, we developed 8 the Plate!

The field of Applied Behavior Analysis is an area that I am very passionate about. I also love working with kids.  It's so much fun that I have the opportunity to give back to my field and even better that I can help kids and families along the way.  This is my WHY! My husband is driven by the opportunity to create healthier lifestyles for all members of a family.  Although we are coming from different angles, we are both excited about this venture.

We know that we could not have gotten to this point without the love and support from our friends and family... Thank you! We are proud that we started this journey on Kickstarter. It was because of our early adopters, family and friends that made it possible! We will be forever grateful.
