Meet Jayvin Washington. A graduate of Texas Southern University with a degree in food and nutrition science, the Booker T. Washington High School alumna originally wanted to become a pharmacist. Working as a pharmacy tech in college, Washington realized many of her customers could get off medications for hypertension, diabetes or high cholesterol by changing their lifestyle.
“I felt like I wasn’t going to be successful with changing someone’s life in that role,” she says. After graduation she founded meal subscription service BiteWay in July 2018. She started with one customer, and now has nearly 450 individuals awaiting her brand’s relaunch later this month.
