In a land far, far away (cough, Australia, cough) co-founders Lisa & Adam met and began the love story of a lifetime. Inseparable since day one, they have had quite the adventure! Engaged two months into dating, they knew this was a love that would stand the test of time. Life threw them a curve ball when Lisa got sick with a chronic illness called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) in 2017, leaving her bedridden for over a year. During that time, Lisa experienced extreme loss, fear and doubt but was determined to not let it take her down. One night in July 2018, she had a dream about creating Mermaid Straw. She woke up the next morning and got right to work. Within two weeks, they had their first sale and knew they were onto something. Through working to heal the planet, Lisa began healing herself. While she still has hard days, life is full of purpose and worth every minute. Now happily married for over 10 years, Lisa & Adam are beyond grateful for the response their mission has gained and for the ability to live their passions every day.
We are a team of animal, nature, and water lovers. We are dedicated to cleaning our planet and caring for the world around us. The heart of our company is our mission. Cleanups, education, philanthropy, and volunteering are who we are, at our core.
Yo! I'm Lisa, Co-founder & CEO of Mermaid Straw. I'm an extroverted introvert that loves cats, puzzles, being weird and working (yep, you read that right). I'm an empath and highly intuitive. In fact, I had a dream about starting Mermaid Straw and I'm so thankful I stuck with that intuition! I have a chronic illness called POTS and am an advocate for fellow Spoonie warriors. I have a deep passion for doing what's right for our planet. And last but certainly not least, I am forever obsessed with my husband of over TEN years, Adam and our two kitties, Dex & Storm.
G’day, I’m Adam, Co-founder & COO of Mermaid Straw. I'm from a small town about an hour south of Sydney, Australia. I have a big family back home with 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I spent my childhood outdoors, surfing, riding BMX, playing soccer, going for bush walks, etc. Being outdoors so much lead me to grow, not only a respect for nature, but a LOVE for nature. I’m an ocean lover, an animal lover, a drummer, a traveler and a guy who is madly in love with his American girl and furchildren, Dex and Storm.
Hello! My name is Noël. To say that working at Mermaid Straw has changed my life is an understatement. I feel so blessed to have met people that are just as passionate about the environment as I am. The environment has always been extremely important to me. I am a huge fan of the outdoors! I’m also very much into fitness and trying to eat healthy. I have a VERY big family and they are all so outgoing and amazing in their own ways... Which also explains a lot about my personality! I absolutely love meeting new people and learning new things.
What’s up guys! I’m Victoria, Wholesale Coordinator here at Mermaid Straw. My life revolves around my work, my friends and family, and most of all, my pup Duke. I’ve always been one of those over the top nature/animal lovers, so working here has been the perfect fit. I started hanging around about 2 years ago when Noël (my baby sister) was hired and Adam and Lisa decided to keep me. I was in a pretty tough place at that point in my life and I can honestly say this company, our mission, and all of the amazing people here, changed my soul for the better. And I am forever grateful for this family.
Hi everyone! I’m Emily, and I’m the Customer Happiness Representative at Mermaid Straw. I’ve been here for over 2 years and absolutely love what I do. When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with friends, listen to music, be outdoors, cook, and travel! I’m also a big animal lover, but cats have my heart. I love our planet and I think it’s important to do what we can to save it. Working at Mermaid Straw motivates me everyday to be a better person for myself and the planet, and I’m so thankful to be surrounded by such an amazing team.
Hi guys, I’m Alicia! I’m happiest when I have a strong mission to work towards, so I’m lucky that Mermaid Straw has become a second home. I love all things fitness, environmental, business and animal related. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats, I call them my mini zoo. Outside of work you can find me at the beach, on dog walks, reading a book or trying out new coffee places. Coffee is the way to my heart. And at work, you can find me squeezing in time to give Dex and Storm all the love I have to give, even on Storm’s grumpy days.
Hey, I’m Vinnie! One of the fulfillment girls here at Mermaid Straw. Animals have always taken up a huge portion of my heart so working with my amazing coworkers and bosses who love animals and the environment just as much as I do has been a dream. My favorite thing about working at Mermaid Straw is that I am constantly learning new things about not only the environment, but life in general. Adam and Lisa’s drive and passion for change is truly contagious. When I’m not working, I’m usually chasing my six-year-old daughter around, hanging with my family and friends, or studying to finish up my last semester of dental hygiene. Other noteworthy obsessions of mine include spaghetti, mac n cheese, and puzzles of all kinds.
Hey, My name is Grace and I am apart of the fulfilment team here at Mermaid Straw. If I'm not at work you can either find me at the gym or relaxing on my porch listening to music. I also love trying new foods, spontaneous weekend getaways, spending time with my family, and anything outdoors. Mending and maintaining this beautiful planet we all get to live on has always been a cause heavy on my heart. To have been given the opportunity to work for Mermaid Straw and carry out such an important mission has honestly been a dream come true.
Hey, I’m Dexter Morgan, or Dex for short. I’m the KEO (Kitty Executive Officer) at Mermaid Straw. You might see me from time to time on our stories or posts on social media. I love all the attention I can get. I ride with my humans to work every morning on their car's center console and hop out when we arrive at the office. I promptly take my position on my throne as they work all day and feed me (obviously) when I whine. I get excited when visitors come to our store for some extra cuddles. I love catnip & coconut oil and my favorite toy is long dried grass from outside. Anyway, catch ya on the fish side. I need a nap.
