Ashley Marie, Founder and Chief Snack Officer of B.T.R Bar joins Melissa on the mic for our Everyday Woman series. Ashley partnered with registered dieticians, a personal chef, and a food scientist to create a protein bar with the highest quality, cleanest, best ingredients on the planet AKA the first protein with a purpose! B.T.R is an abbreviation for her parents’ mantra, “Be BOLD, TENACIOUS & RESILIENT” and the company is a tribute to her parents who passed away from rare forms of cancer.
