Highlighting gr8ness: Meet Roshan Mehdizadeh Corsiglia

“Gr8 taste + little waist = gr8nola. That is why I advocated for gr8nola to be stocked in the (~100+) micro kitchens at Google!”
— Roshan

Tell us about yourself: My husband and I are parents to the most delightful human! Our daughter, Azadeh, is ~1.5 years old and she lights up our world. Professionally, I'm a campus development executive at Google, Inc. in the real estate workplace services (REWS) department. I'm responsible for project controls on new, ground-up, construction and I'm also a project executive on select new, ground-up, construction projects. Additionally, I am a researcher and lecturer at Stanford University in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department.

What inspires you to be gr8? I have an internal drive to meet and exceed my potential... oh, and, I always love a challenge! 

I #eatgr8nola...by the fistful.  

What's your gr8nola story? I've had the privilege of being friends with Erica, the founder of gr8nola, for over a decade. We attended the same high school and swam competitively together over the years. A few years ago, when Erica mentioned she has a granola company, I asked for some samples and, sure enough, it was nothing short of gr8! I worked with the Google Food team and organized for gr8nola to be showcased at our annual Google Microkitchen (MK) fair. Erica and gr8nola were a hit and her granola was selected to be supplied in all our offices in the Bay Area!

"A gr8 life is a sum of gr8 days - I’m inspired to create my dream day every day through action and choice. I am constantly inspired by people who are not afraid to be themselves and be vulnerable."

Exciting news! The gr8nola Instagram page hit 10,000 followers… in a little under one year! This is a huge milestone, especially since I knew nothing about Instagram prior to starting this for my granola business. But when you're trying to build a consumer brand out of pure scrappiness, you have no choice but to get your hands dirty and learn.
