Lucy Postins is the co-founder and CEO of The Honest Kitchen, a company that produces all natural, human-grade whole foods for pets. She's guardian to (and mildly obsessed with) Willow and Taro, her two Rhodesian Ridgebacks. She also shares her life with two daughters, a former racehorse, three slightly naughty ponies, six chickens and a husband. She lives in San Diego, California.
Lucy spearheads all operations, corporate & product development, strategy and marketing for The Honest Kitchen. With extensive experience as a companion animal nutritionist, Lucy is an innovative entrepreneur who's passionate about advanced nutrition and holistic pet health including complementary modalities such as herbalism and homeopathy. Her interest in natural nutrition and the raw food diet led Postins to investigate ways to make her own pet's food more convenient to prepare, which eventually resulted in the creation of her holistic pet food company.
Considered an expert in her field, Postins frequently writes articles for local and national online and print media, conducts radio interviews and educational spots, and holds educational seminars for retailers and pet owners on the importance of good nutrition.
Prior to founding The Honest Kitchen in 2002, Postins served as the equine and canine nutritionist for a Southern California pet food manufacturer and led the company's marketing and product development initiatives as well.
Postins has been recognized by Pet Product News as one of the "25 people to watch" in 2006, 2011 and 2012, for her efforts in creating a sound, flourishing young company with innovative products and strong, widely respected marketing initiatives. She was also named to Pet Age Magazine's Women of Influence in the Pet Industry in 2015. Postins' company has been named among Outside Magazine's Best Places to Work in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015.
Postins holds a bachelor's degree with honors in Equine and Business Studies from Warwickshire College of Agriculture (Moreton Morrell) and Coventry University in the UK.
