    MP Ep. 21 | Ceres Chill Chat with Founder and CEO Lisa Myers

    CHEERS TO SEASON 2!

    To kick off a new season, this episode is a Ceres Chill Chat w/ Lisa Myers (founder and CEO of the brand). Lisa is the inventor and founding mama of Ceres Chill, a breastmilk storage company that replaces the 1970’s bulky cooler technology that has been holding women back for decades.

    Being incredibly stubborn and a resourceful mom, she got down to work inventing a solution to solve the problem of the cumbersome, icky, short lived, tell-tale milk storage options that she was forced to use. She filed for a patent and began working with an amazing team of friends to make Ceres Chill available to any mom in search of a better way to achieve their breastfeeding goals while continuing to be a great professional success.

    About Ceres Chill:

    Created by a mom, for moms, Ceres Chill guarantees convenience with their double walled stainless steel Breastmilk Chillers. A handful of ice is all you need to keep your breastmilk or formula safe for 20 hours!  No more lugging around bags full of plastic and chemical freeze packs. Now, you can pump and double pump all day into one sleek container. 

    Ceres Chill is there for you no matter where your journey takes you - Breastmilk storage, formula storage, cow's milk for toddlers and more! Their products are not only beautiful, they’re also travel-friendly and FSA/HSA reimbursable. This is truly breastmilk storage reimagined.

    TLDR, we talked about:


    The importance of protecting your breastmilk when working, traveling, and just being a human! 
    The impact this product has made in the lives of so many women!
    How moms are capable of changing the world!
