Leeann was born in Kiev, Ukraine where buckwheat, or gretchka, was a diet staple used in many of her family’s meals. As a busy Brooklyn mom of two energetic kids, she strives for the best nutrition to keep them going all day long.
But, when pressed for time, it was hard to find portable snacks that weren’t full of junk and loaded with sugar. She was using buckwheat in her cooking and realized that it’s versatility and nutritional benefits were mostly unknown.
That’s what motivated her to start her company – BuckWHAT! - to share buckwheat’s great taste and myriad benefits with others.
