Michelle (The real brains behind Beets) was fortunate enough to find her way to San Luis Obispo, and attend Cal Poly where she would earn a dual B.S. in Food Science and Nutrition. She loved the central coast so much, she stayed to earn her M.S. in Food Science. While at Cal Poly she raced at the national level in collegiate triathlon, and also completed Ironman Coeur d'Alene. She has been a fitness enthusiast her entire life, stemming from her days as a soccer player right here in Livermore, where she was born and raised. Her three children (actually 2, not including Dave) are the love of her life.

Dave enjoys long walks on the beach, and making sure Michelle is always right :) After a stint playing D1 baseball at Cal Poly, he was driven to find new athletic purpose. He raced competitively for the Cal Poly Triathlon Team, and also completed Ironman New Zealand while in San Luis Obispo. He has a B.S. and M.S. in Nutritional Science, and also served as a strength coach for Cal Poly's Lacrosse, Rugby, and Field Hockey teams.
