Inspired by Family,
Crafted by Science

Muniq is my tribute to the legacy of my beloved little sister, Monica. Inspired by her memory, I set out to create better nutrition solutions that she would have loved, created with a deep scientific foundation based on the power of the gut microbiome.


Meet Our Founder

After graduating from Princeton and Harvard Business School, my journey led me to the top of large and successful health-focused companies. But it wasn’t until I researched the science of the gut microbiome that I realized we could fine-tune nutrition products that TRULY transform lives. I’m proud to honor my sister Monica through the work we do every day at Muniq.
