Anita Pirkle has spent over 24 years sharing Juice Plus, a whole-food, plant-based nutritional product consisting of fruit, vegetable and berry powders. These powders come in capsules and gummy forms. Although Anita feels that good nutrition is the key to optimal health for everyone, she likes to focus on Moms with young children to start them off with good eating habits.
Anita graduated from Purdue University with a degree in elementary education. Prior to her Juice Plus business, she was a trainer for a large managed care company. She also was a trainer for a personal safety company giving one-hour talks on personal safety for many large and small companies. On a more personal note, she facilitated a group called Compassionate Friends for several years.
Even though she never taught in a school setting, she used the skills she learned at Purdue to further her career. She spent 10 years in Toastmasters to hone her speaking skills and while there she was a mentor assisting new arrivals who were insecure in their ability to speak before an audience.
Ms. Pirkle lives in Dunwoody with her husband, Carl, and a cat named Coco. She enjoys singing in her church choir, reading, doing crossword puzzles and being with family which includes two grandchildren. She has been a member of ProWin for almost a year and a half and feels that her membership has greatly enhanced her business and personal goals.
