Barney Butter’s Dawn Kelley: Founding A Company & Getting Married The Year I Turned 40

After 30 years in the beauty industry, during which she founded 5 successful brands, Marcia Kilgore is now running what she believes will be her most successful venture yet.

A deep dive into the health benefits of almond butter. Dawn Kelley, president and CEO of Barney Butter is our guest. The Fresno, California-based company has a unique way of making almond butter that avoids bitterness and that nasty, pasty or oily texture so many of products have. Barney Butter also offers a no added salt or sugar version, making it one of the healthiest almond butters on the market.

On the show Dawn and Linda discuss the health benefits of almond butter – ranging from better sleep to stronger bones—and fresh ways of integrating it into your diet.

We also talk about the year Dawn’s life turned upside down (for the better!)— a year in which she quit one job, started another, moved from Southern California to Maine and married a man with threekids. By the way, it was also the year she turned forty.
