Our Story


EasyPeasie was created and is owned by two sisters — two peas in a pod! Between us are two doctors (a pediatrician and an engineer), a mommy, and an auntie.
Like you, we have earnestly sought solutions to the age-old question of how to get kids to eat their vegetables. Out of this necessity, EasyPeasie was born. We care about kids’ nutrition, and are in the business of providing families simple, natural, convenient, and fun ways to improve every meal with added vegetable nutrition. We present EasyPeasie — from our family to yours.
Send us your thoughts and questions on babies, toddlers, veggies, palate priming, being parents, being patients, doctoring, being doctored, or anything else!  Comment on our blog, drop us a note on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
Ask the Peas!  We’re eager to hear from you!
Love,
The Peas

EasyPeasie Duo -- ``The Peas``

Dorielle T. Price, PhD

Engineer, Mom, Co-Founder

Dorielle is a dedicated wife and mother of two young boys.  In addition to home-making, she enjoys volunteering, tutoring and mentoring youth, and staying active outdoors with her family.  She is a native of Hallandale Beach, FL.  Her parents say that she has been an entrepreneur since the age of six, from making and selling crafts, to selling produce from her grandmother’s garden.  Her school friends and teammates called her “Duracell” because of her high energy and fearless hard work.

After completing a competitive magnet program at Stranahan High School, Dorielle obtained her Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering (EE) at Clark Atlanta University. She then completed Master’s and Doctoral degrees in EE at the University of South Florida, with research focused on designing microelectrodes to quantitatively detect cancer cells.  Her expertise in the field demonstrated through authorship of multiple book chapters and peer-reviewed journal articles.  Both engineering and the PhD process developed Dorielle’s experimental and analytical skills; teaching her how to persevere and problem solve.

Dorielle worked in the industry for several years before her family decided to return home to Florida.   Her second son having to transition to formula-feeding led Dorielle and her sister to pediatric research showing that breast-fed babies have more varied food interests than formula-fed babies when they grow to be toddlers.  She and her sister posed the question, how can we expose the palates of little ones to vegetable flavors in particular as early and as often as possible?  Applying her skills and mommy-motivation to this question, EasyPeasie was born.  EasyPeasie is the brainchild and now main the beneficiary of Dorielle’s skills, training, and experiences.

Jamelah D. Tucker, MD

Pediatrician, Aunty, Co-Founder

Jamelah has been a pediatrician and naturally, a child advocate, for more than a decade.  Over the years, she has cared for thousands of infants and children across the United States, from Alaska to Florida and places in between.  She is a patron of the arts, a mentor, and supporter of causes that speak to her heart such as children’s library programs and care of wounded veterans.

Jamelah has a passion for good, healthy foods and for teaching families the importance of balancing good calories in and calories out.  Believing that artificial flavoring has “hijacked” our notions of what food should taste like, her desire for all of us is to invest in re-training our palates toward natural flavors – take our tastebuds back!

She is indebted to her hometown – Hallandale Beach, FL – where her and Dorielle’s maternal grandparents were also small business owners for many decades.  Jamelah is a proud alumnus of Hampton University in Virginia, Emory University Schools of Medicine and Public Health in Atlanta, and University of Maryland Medical Center Department of Pediatrics in Baltimore.  Jamelah loves to recount and reflect on her travels – both personal and professional adventures – as she is certain that the sum of those experiences led her to the entrepreneurial and creative endeavor that is now EasyPeasie.
