Brand Ambassador: Rowan Lapi

 

 

St. Louis, MO (July 2021) —  Northwestern University center midfielder Rowan Lapi says she’s always trying to better herself both on the field and in the classroom.  That’s why the collegiate soccer player turns to Karviva Beverages to fuel her mind and body. The company is excited to announce Lapi as an Ambassador for its plant-based prebiotic and antioxidant drinks.

A native of Reinholds, Pennsylvania, Lapi discovered the wellness beverages while shopping at her local Whole Foods store.  “I used the sports drink to rehydrate after a tough workout and loved it.” Lapi adds “The ingredients were so much better than all the other sports drink beverages out there.”

An economics major with minors in business institutions and entrepreneurship, Rowan Lapi is a strong advocate for using food and a healthy lifestyle for longevity within sport and life.  She also supports the environmentally-sustainable production of Karviva Beverages.

Karviva founder, Dr. Angela Zeng, is excited about the partnership as she shares a connection with Lapi with her focus on healthy living and as an alumni of Northwestern University.  Zeng was a postdoctoral fellow at the medical school in Chicago before founding Karviva Beverages.
