We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Flava and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Flava, how does your business help the community or world?
As a Pharmacist of 15 years, I saw a decline in our health and realized many diseases we face can be prevented such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol. I enjoyed cooking and understood the importance of flavor, our health starts in the kitchen. So in 2017, I created a healthy all-natural seasoning line that will assist with cooking and making healthy meals flavorful and not boring. I also promote proactive wellness tips to help people understand the importance and urgency of Health yourself.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a licensed Pharmacist and worked primarily in outpatient services, but departed in 2019. The journey was difficult and sometimes uncertain but realized all the lessons learned that have assisted in my entrepreneurial endeavors. My love for people drives me, to share my knowledge and expertise to get us healthier. My seasoning line has grown from 2 to 10 amazing Flavas options. My family has also grown, being a mom of 2 small children, and a wife is both challenging and rewarding and we work together and have been successful

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I enjoy great food, especially seafood, so I would call a personal chef from Dillons Catering and have him prepare lump crab cakes and skewer shrimp coupled with garlic green beans, mac and cheese, and a garden salad. Then for some scenery, we would drive to Amicalola falls and enjoy nature and hike followed by a drive-in movie at starlight.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to acknowledge my family and friends for all the support and encouragement as I step out in faith to follow my passion through entrepreneurship. Liberating Word Ministries for the prayers and encouraging word from Dr. Pamela Boykin Jones who happens to be my mother and best friend. She taught me to work in excellence and to love God.
