Sonya Fox

Sonya Fox is the Founder of Vurde, the first mindfulness-based meal kit subscription service. She was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina; but like many Black Americans, her family has roots all over—from the Southeast to the Midwest and of course, the Deep South. As a result, she grew up with shared yet varied culinary influences. Food, family, and fellowship were key aspects of her childhood.

Sonya brings more than a decade of experience in the Human Resources industry with demonstrated experience bringing a creative mindset to improving organizational performance with emotional intelligence and wellness-centric solutions. During this time, she learned first-hand some of the challenges many of us face with obtaining a healthy work/life balance. 

Vurde is her solution to what she considers a balance crisis in our society. She believes that, through food, we can find a healthier balance by connecting our mind, body, and spiritual wellness to what we eat. Vurde’s carefully curated meal subscription kit puts wellness at the forefront with crafted recipes, plant-based ingredients, mindful activities, and a curated music playlist. All of these parts meld together to provide the ultimate holistic dining experience to lift both your spirit and palette. 

As part of the 202Creates Residency program, Sonya will work on a private beta launch in the DMV area and Vurde's development of employee/employer-centric wellness solutions aimed at bringing more civility and care in the workplace.
