GETTING PERSONAL: Q&A WITH THE SIREN FOUNDERS

19.07.17

  • Full Name: Elizabeth Ann Giannuzzi
  • Age: 26
  • Role at Siren: Co-Founder, CEO and chief taste tester
  • Favorite Siren flavor: Cookie Dough. When I was little, I used to literally lick the bowl after my mom made homemade cookie dough. Our cookie dough bites bring me back to those carefree memories and I love how our bites are packed with dark chocolate chips.
  • Favorite workout: Running, SoulCycle, and Megaformer-based pilates.
  • I can’t start my day without… getting sweaty and working out. I always prefer to workout in the mornings to stay energized and de-stressed all day long.
  • Dream pet: Miniature Australian Shepherd
  • Guilty pleasure: Pinot Noir from either Sonoma or Burgundy. I’m a Certified Sommelier and a total wine nerd, so quality Pinot Noir is always hard for me to resist.
  • Latest TV Binge: Billions - I used to work in finance, so I’m especially drawn to the characters and drama in this show.
  • Drink of Choice: I’m currently loving KeVita’s probiotic-enhanced juices and am also a huge fan of REBBL’s plant-based protein drinks.
  • Hidden talent: I know the lyrics to pretty much every Billy Joel song (including all of the verses in ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’).
  • Go-to weeknight meal: Spiralized zucchini and sweet potato noodles with homemade vegan pesto (we’ll share the recipe here soon!).
  • Dream vacation: Ubud, Bali.
  • Favorite way to treat yourself: Bubble baths and candles.
  • Full Name: Abigail Leigh Giannuzzi, but I go by Abby.
  • Age: 23
  • Role at Siren: Co-founder, COO, and packaging guru.
  • Favorite Siren flavor: Snickerdoodle- it’s the perfect balance of sweet and spice.
  • Favorite workout/workout routine: Barry’s Bootcamp- I first discovered this workout two years ago when I was living in New York City and it has now become the only way to get me on a treadmill.
  • I can’t start my day without...Dunkin’ Donuts (yes I’m from Boston) Keurig Coffee with almond milk and stevia.
  • Dream pet: Border collie! My family has always had at least 1 border collie, so you could say I am a little bit biased.
  • Guilty pleasure: The Bachelorette- sorry, basic.
  • Latest TV Binge: Silicon Valley Season 4- I really wish I had a Jared in my life.
  • Drink of Choice: La Croix- luckily our office keeps its kitchen stocked with all my favorite flavors so I probably drink 2 cans a day.
  • Hidden talent: Squash! I have played competitively since I was 12, and was most recently on the Stanford’s Varsity Squash team- Go Card!
  • Go-to weeknight meal: Veggie stir-fry - I have perfected my recipe and can whip it together in under 10 minutes.
  • Dream vacation: Santorini.
  • Favorite way to treat yourself: A fresh pedicure. Sometimes you just need someone to rub your feet.
