OUR FEARLESS LEADER

Doughp is here to make this world a little sweeter.

You made it! So here's a little about me, Kelsey Moreira -- the proud founder of Doughp...

First off - I've got an insatiable sweet tooth, a passion for making people happy, and a love of creating wild confections! I was raised by a big family in Sacramento, California who can all agree on one thing – food. is. awesome.

While I spent (and enjoyed!) a decade in high-tech product marketing before starting Doughp, my one true love is dessert. It's a toss-up if I like baking more or watching other people enjoy what I make! To put your heart into something, truly enjoy doing it, and see others light up with their first bite – there's nothing more rewarding than that.

Unfortunately, I'd lost my love of baking for a number of years. I was sort of coasting through life; killing it at school and with my corporate job - but in my personal life I was struggling with addiction. My issues with alcohol started in high school and ballooned during my years in college. I passed it off, as many do, to just crazy college times and that I'd get the hang of it as I got older. But I never did. My relationship with alcohol was unhealthy and to still have so many nights into my mid-twenties where I'd wake up terribly embarrassed, confused, and with just partial memories from the night before - I knew it was time to call it quits. I wanted to be the best version of myself, all the time.

After getting sober in 2015, I rediscovered that love of baking. Cookies to be precise...and occasionally not always baking that dough. Cookies are the ultimate go-to. Without fail, any time I made cookies, I'd always save some of the cookie dough for snacking on. Cookies are a total 2-for-1; melt-in-your mouth dough before you bake it, and warm chewy cookies after baking! I felt like a bit of an unnecessary rebel though, as consuming raw eggs in the dough was definitely not chill. As I turned to a healthier lifestyle and became what I call a 'part-time vegan" over the last few years, I'd swapped the recipe's eggs for a vegan substitute. I was a pretty awful vegan TBH, so I was leaving those eggs out but including butter (PSA: Butter is incredible.) And BOOM - I realized I'd made an indulgent and slightly more "guilt-free" way to dig in without risking getting sick!

Once I had this delicious dessert, it was time to figure out how to get it out to the masses! Building Doughp was a way to bring this widely-loved sweet out of your kitchen and into the public where you can enjoy it with friends, family or out on a date. Raised in Northern California, I crafted this brand for my fellow millennials; building off the different experiences I grew up with. I'm bringing out a treat that can bring back childhood memories - with a brand that is anything but childish. Doughp is a little edgy, slightly sarcastic, and delicious AF.

I can most certainly say Doughp wouldn't exist if I hadn't made the decision to stop drinking and I hope my journey can inspire others struggling with their own addictions. Really dope stuff can happen in sobriety, I promise... :)

"So here I am! Doughp is ready to make this world a little sweeter, one scoop at a time.

Stay chill, Kelsey

STILL CURIOUS?

DOES SHE DO ANYTHING BUT EAT COOKIE DOUGH?

FAMILY

I've got a whole bunch of love back home. A Mom & Dad who think I'm the coolest thing since sliced bread. And two awesome, wildly supportive step parents. I've also got an older brother who is proud of me but more just excited about eating the Doughp.

I was born in Dallas, raised in Sacramento and spent 3 stellar years in San Francisco where I opened Doughp! It was a foodie's dream city and I ate it up! I've since moved out to Vegas to live that #suburblyfe with my husband and our two cats.

WILL WORKOUT 4 DOUGH

Exercise for me brings two main beenefits: 1) I stay sane. Great stress reliever! and 2) I get to eat as much cookie dough as I want. YES PLZ.

My husband and I are training for an Ironman 70.3 so our early mornings are spent on the road, on a bike, or in the water!

PARTY TRICK

I can rap all of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby and there may or may not be a choreographed dance to accompany it. I can confirm it is wildly embarrassing and excellent simultaneously.
