I founded Vitamin Angels in 1994 in response to the North- ridge Earthquake in Southern California. At the time, I ran a natural products company, and when a disaster relief agency contacted me requesting a donation of vitamins for the children of the migrant workers who had been displaced by the earthquake and were at an increased risk of illness as a result, I helped out. A few weeks after the disaster, I learned about vitamin A deficiency and how simple and cost-effective this intervention is. One high dose vitamin A every six months could save a child’s eyesight and life and it only costs around 25 US cents per year. I couldn’t believe it. I continued to educate myself about under- nutrition and vitamin supplementation, and Vitamin Angels was born. It was the perfect way to do something meaningful with my life. Vitamin Angels married my background in childbirth education and midwifery with my corporate background in developing and selling products in the natural products industry
