Meet Our Team
It’s time to see the faces behind the mission! We are a team of individuals
who dream big, work hard, and have fun along the way!
Hey Pixie Squad, I’m Amber and I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart, I am filled with gratitude and I’m more excited every day as I see women around the world experiencing period freedom because of this company. It’s such a dream come true!
My brother Benjamin and I started Pixie Cup after I spent some time traveling around the world, and saw a desperate need for reusable period products. It broke my heart that women were not able to go to school or work for days each month, just because they were female and had a menstrual cycle. I was not going to let that continue if I had anything to do with it! I was an amateur boxer in college and even though my days in the ring are long done, I’m still a fighter at heart. Pixie Cup is my way of fighting for period freedom for women all around the world!
I am absolutely an adrenaline junkie who is always looking for the next rush. My most recent hobby is skateboarding and I recently turned our family’s haybarn into a skateboarding adventure zone. It’s SO COOL! I also love snowboarding and my biggest bucket list item right now is to go heliboarding.
Hey everybody, I’m Benjamin! You’re probably wondering “Umm, how and why is a dude a co-founder of a feminine hygiene company!?” I’m still wondering the same thing. You would not believe the looks and faces I get when people ask me what I do.
It may surprise you to learn that I actually love what I do. I am blessed to be part of a movement that is impacting lives all around the world and love seeing the difference that Pixie Cup is making in so many lives. My sister and I have a blast leading a team of people who go above and beyond what we could expect or imagine. We couldn’t do this without them and I’m truly grateful for the team we have around us.
I love business and real estate, that’s all I do now aside from the super fun – probably also stupid – activities I enjoy. I skydive and love spearfishing. My next fish is a Marlin, or maybe I’ll decide to try spearing a Tuna. I’m an avid skier and Amber has recently dragged me into skateboarding, which to my surprise I’m really enjoying. Above all, I love Jesus. He’s completely changed my life and I give Him the glory for all I do.

Fun facts: Jill cooked three meals a day for her family at the age of eight.
Her favorite flower is a sunflower because they follow the sun, they make food, and they are happy and bright… kinda like her!

Born and raised in Maine, she enjoys both the outdoors and adventuring with her two young kiddos! Single mom life isn’t for the faint of heart so she looks forward to her recharge time of painting, reading, knitting or binging Netflix.

Karen is a certified holistic nutrition consultant but doesn’t really like to cook — she leaves that to her husband. Being in the mountains, traveling to new places, and curling up with a good book are a few things that ground her.
