Meet the MKT Mama Team
We have partnered with dedicated women to bring you a well rounded team to support you as best we can in the prenatal through postnatal phase of your life.
Willy is a classically trained chef, founder of Pickle & Link Catering, co-founder of Market.Kitchen.Table, and mom to her son Crosby. As a New York native, Willy grew up with an eclectic palate, love for food and an appreciation of food delivery. Two years ago she teamed up with Amanda Schoppe on a path to making healthy eating more approachable for New Yorkers. After having her son in August, 2017 she wanted to combine her postpartum experience with the healthy eating program that she and Amanda had been working on. Aside from cooking & eating, Willy’s passions are spending time with her family in Quogue & Millbrook, playing tennis & skiing.
Amanda is a Fitness Trainer, Health Coach, former Radio City Rockette and co-founder of Market.Kitchen.Table. She has a true love of movement, connecting with people and wants to help reconnect people to their bodies through the food they eat. Willy and Amanda launched MKT two years ago with a mission to demystify food and to make healthy eating approachable for Brooklynites and New Yorkers alike. She and Willy are thrilled to create a well rounded Postnatal Wellness Program for new mamas that aligns MKT’s love of healthy food for Every BODY and the necessary support every step of the way. Amanda and her Fiance, Peter spend their time away from MKT relaxing with family, bike riding around Brooklyn and in nature as much as possible.
Cristina is a CLEC, doula, co-founder of milksource, La Leche League Leader in Hudson County, and mom to one toddler and one on the way, After having her first son, Cristina knew she wanted to help other moms navigate the beautiful yet tumultuous season of pregnancy, birth, and new motherhood. She sought to fill a need she so deeply wished was filled during her own breastfeeding experience and create a safe space to educate and support moms, so she co-founded milksource, which provides online and in-person breastfeeding education and support. When she's not working to support women and babies through pregnancy and postpartum, she's traveling with her family, eating sushi and perpetually designing and decorating her home. Cristina lives with her son, husband and 2 dogs in Hoboken, New Jersey.
