Meet the Team

Stephanie Lentz | Founder & CEO

Stephanie Lentz
Stephanie grew up in the Seattle area and enjoys exploring the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. She has always chosen to follow her passion, and for many years that meant working with kids, teaching baking/cooking classes, catering for friends' parties, becoming a certified dance fitness instructor, and dabbling in performing arts. After becoming a mom, Stephanie took a particular interest in how her family's daily habits were impacting the planet, and after a bit of research, she realized it was time to make some drastic lifestyle changes. Stephanie created Scoop Marketplace out of a need for a grocery store that aligned with her family values. She is thankful to have an opportunity to bring her passion and skill together by teaching people how to live more sustainably and take intentional action to build the world they want to live in.

Taylor Stirling | Store Ops Manager 

Taylor

Taylor is from Washington D.C. and came to the PNW in search of innovative, sustainable small businesses that were creating positive change. She has always been known as the “tree-hugger” of her family, and followed that passion through college. She graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Environmental and Sustainability Studies, and continued her education in Sustainable Business Strategy at Harvard Business School (online) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sustainable living is important to Taylor because she believes it is the most urgent crisis we face, and businesses like Scoop are evolving the industry of consumer goods for a better future and educating communities on ethical buying. When she isn’t in the shop, you can find Taylor walking her wiener dog, Bailey, at Golden Gardens in Ballard.

 

Jenni Keniston | Communications

Jenni  

Jenni grew up in Montana and came to Washington State to study interior design.  It was during college that she discovered she was drawn to the idea of sustainable building design and utilizing creativity to minimize our impact on our planet.  Jenni is passionate about plant-based health and low-waste living.  She spends much of her time playing in the dirt with her children, either in her backyard garden or on a forest trail. She loves to help others find more eco-friendly solutions to day-to-day challenges, so feel free to send her a message if you have a question or are searching for a specific product.
