We are EM+PACT
Don’t let the polka dots fool you. We mean business.
The bar aisle is a crowded and noisy place. Yet among it all, there’s nothing that speaks to women. Chalky, high in sugar, chemical-laden, and mainly geared towards men, it’s no wonder most bars end up half-eaten and folded over in our purse or gym bag. At EM+PACT, we’ve made it our goal to put an end to this nonsense.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
At EM+PACT, we believe empowering women makes the world a better place, and this belief permeates everything we do. From our ingredients and core values, to the way we structure our business, it’s our goal to be intentional about appreciating, recognizing, and taking into account what women want and need. For us, this meant saying sayonara to the status quo surrounding the energy bar aisle, and delivering a healthy, delicious protein bar that’s unapologetically made just for women. A snack and go-to energy source that helps fuel your inner-goal digger, helping you get that much closer to achieving whatever impact you’re set on making.
At the end of the day, it’s our hope that EM+PACT will represent a movement and community that helps you, and every woman out there, be the best version of yourself.
The EM+PACT Goal Diggers
A Texas-born lady boss who’s not afraid to dance her heart out (Britney Spears-style), Melonie is our resident Chief Goal Digger. ‘Hustle’ and ‘Be Kind’ are her personal mottos, and she’s convinced amazing things happen when you combine the two. A once-upon-a-time corporate and securities attorney at an international law firm, she puts the many lessons she learned about shattering glass ceilings and excelling in traditionally male-driven arenas to use on the daily. Whatever you’re planning, she’s in (bonus points for anything involving Vegas, dance parties, lattes, or heels). She can now be found living out her dream of building a company that empowers the girl boss in women everywhere, slinging insanely tasty, polka-dot-wrapped protein bars, and loving life with her husband and two beautiful girls.
Melonie’s fear of spiders once caused her to eject out of a moving vehicle in the middle of a Parisian roundabout. Apparently, not everything is bigger in Texas.
An L.A. boy who once “rocked” frosted tips, Zeke’s now rocking the title of Chief Gentleman here at EM+PACT. As Melonie’s hubbie and father to their two daughters, helping his girls feel confident, empowered and loved has been his business before it was his business. Zeke’s a jack of many trades: He’s swung a hammer as a construction worker, drove race cars (mainly to impress Melonie), had a stint as a high school teacher and a litigator, and eventually got in touch with his feminine side after teaming up with Melonie to run a health and fitness company for women (and now, a protein bar company for women). The dude loves NASCAR, can play a mean jazz sax, and is addicted to lattes. If you ask him about his most important job, he’ll be quick to tell you it’s raising his two girls to be strong, independent, kind humans who always have someone who believes in them.
Best part of his job…telling his kids that their mom is his boss.
