We live in an amazing world…

Annie Chun was the first, but clearly not the last to see a wider potential market for gim or 김 as a snack and not just as a side dish. This biography of the SeaSnax founder is kind of fascinating–a perfect blend of Korean obsession with “well-being” meeting the hippie-organic American demographic:

Jin earned her Masters in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at YoSan University. During her studies, she developed an interest in nutrition as a tool for prevention of disease, self-healing and self-empowerment. In her view, nutrition/food is medicine for the soul and body and the only lasting treatment for self-healing. While in school, she gave birth to her daughter Namu (tree in Korean). During her pregnancy and motherhood, Jin’s understanding and appreciation for nutrition and health gained more relevance as she realized that it was no longer about me, but we. She is committed to educating, empowering and serving children, mothers and families. She is also the founder of Acuparents, an on-line support community for parents in the health care profession sharing natural and holistic-minded parenting philosophies.
