Who We Are:
Dulcinea Ward | Founder, Juice Creator, Registered Dietitian
I specialize in a whole-body approach to nutrition, believing people can take control of their health and their lives through nourishing food, a balanced lifestyle and a positive state of mind. A few years ago, I purchased my first juicer and it was then I realized the amazing benefit of fresh juice and cleansing in my own life. Pure Simple Juice is my way of sharing this experience with others. I feel that healthy eating can be fun and enjoyable and it is my pleasure to make my favorite juice blends for you.
I am a registered dietitian, licensed in Oregon and I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutritional Sciences from Cornell University and completed a Dietetic Internship with the University of Virginia. Through my experience as a dietitian I have spent time counseling, meal planning, teaching classes and educating others. With this experience, I am able to bring many years of nutrition training to the business and fully believe in the positive health benefits of fresh juice.
Daniel Childs | Design, Branding & Collateral
With a love for life, food, and design Daniel brings a critical and observant eye to the team.

He is also in charge of keeping your cleanse looking clean, tight and clutter free with a mind toward sustainability and reuse.
