Jerri Evans

Countless remarkable women around the world are making a positive impact in their communities and excelling in their professions. It would be impossible to name them all, as every day, more women are making a difference in the lives of others. In honor of Women’s History Month, I want to not only recognize these women but also inspire others to pursue their dreams.

While we often hear about well-known women in the media such as Oprah, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Alicia Keys using their platforms to improve the lives of others, countless lesser-known women are equally deserving of praise. So, without further ado, here are some of the remarkable women who should be celebrated and recognized for their incredible contributions.

  1. Jerri Evans


Turning Natural Juice Bars/Jerri Evans


Hi! I’m Jerri Evans Chief Experience Officer of Turning Natural Juice Bars and I have the juice! No literally, juice bars!

We currently have 6 locations throughout the Washington, D.C. area and are growing. Specializing in cold-pressed juices, fresh smoothies, and vegan/vegetarian-friendly options in communities that are underserved food deserts.

This journey began when my mom was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer in 2001, growing up in Southeast D.C. not having access to better food choices was normal. When my mom passed in 2010, I quit my job as an Aeronautical Engineer and started the journey of helping people connect to quality health. In communities that lacked access.
