Teresa Purzner is a neurosurgeon, developmental neurobiologist, and the founder and CSO of Cerebelly, a company dedicated to providing organic, farm-fresh baby food to nurture and promote infant brain development. As a mother of three and a doctor in Developmental Neurobiology, Teresa knows the importance of providing our children with the nutritious food they need for their developing brains and growing bodies. After the birth of her first child and feeling disappointed in the baby foods that were on the store shelves, Teresa and her brother Nick decided to team up with world-class experts in pediatrics, nutrition, and food science to create farm-fresh, organic baby food that truly promotes healthy brain development.
Teresa joins me today to share what inspired her to start Cerebelly and discuss the connection between the foods we feed our children and healthy brain development. She shares how she founded her company, the steps she took to learn about starting a business, and the importance of taking baby steps to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. We also discuss the biggest challenge she has faced while building the Cerebelly brand, how she overcame that challenge, and how she balances building a business, working in the OR, and raising three young children.
“It seems like an impossible task to create a company when you have absolutely no background in business, but just tackle one problem at a time. There is no ‘one problem’ that is insurmountable.” - Teresa Purzner
