About Tina

Chief of Strategy

Tina recognized at a young age that her happiest moments are spent around food and those who appreciate it. Over her 15+ year career, Tina has had the opportunity to unite her passions for eating and marketing, working with renowned companies in food, hospitality and wellness. She holds a BA in Public Relations from Penn State (where she met Corner Market’s founder, Meghan!) and a certification in Holistic Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Most recently, Tina led the Global Consumer PR Team at Whole Foods Market, heading up the brand’s annual Trends reporting and concepting fun, brand-forward partnerships with industry leaders like Headspace and Progressive Insurance. She worked hand-in-hand with the retail marketing team to bring Whole Foods Market’s mission to life everyday.

Tina got her start in the agency world, representing CPG brands like Sam Adams and Gallo Wines, hospitality mainstays like the NYC Wine & Food Festival, Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, wagamama and Casa Dragones Tequila, and chefs from Michael Symon to Graham Elliot. Over the years, Tina has worn many interesting hats: professional barista, Boston Beer University Graduate, event planner extraordinaire, and food stylist, to name a few.

Tina lives in New Jersey with her two young sons and loves cooking, grocery shopping and her Peloton.

About Meghan

Founder & CEO

Meghan is certified in nutrition through the Tufts x Ketchum Nutrition Certification Program and holds a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. Some of her favorite "wins" include turning a little known Swedish oat milk company into a new iconic brand (Oatly); leading Safeway's PRSA Silver Anvil award-winning campaign; sharing traffic reports on Good Morning America as a Waze spokesperson and having her Waze marketing strategy converted into a Harvard Business School case study. 

Meghan’s known for her media relations skills, having secured cornerstone business and consumer features that drove awareness, web traffic and sales for brands. In addition to leading all strategy and business communications for all clients, Meghan is a crisis specialist and has handled everything from voluntary recalls and FDA complaints to data breaches and CSR-related issues. 

Meghan is committed to supporting the growth of the next generation of business leaders and communications professionals. She serves as a mentor for SKU, is an advisor for multiple companies in and outside of food and has guest lectured universities including NYU and Syracuse. She recently moved to Austin, Texas after 13 years in New York. 

About Sami


Sami has worked with some of the biggest names in food & CPG, including IHOP, S.Pellegrino, Perrier, JOHNSON'S Baby and SharkNinja, to help them refine and renew their relationship with consumers. As part of the award-winning team that executed the IHOb campaign in 2018, Sami has seen how impactful the right kind of PR can be for a business. She also helped launch the Ninja Foodi in 2018, and worked on the global rebrand of JOHNSON'S in 2017.

Prior to "big brand PR", Sami worked with celebrity chefs (including Anne Burrell, Geoffrey Zakarian & Alex Guarnaschelli) as well as restaurants and events to amplify their presence across all mediums: TV, print, online and emerging digital platforms.

Sami shifted to consulting in July 2020 during a pivotal time for PR, as consumer behaviors shifted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her love of delicious food and wellness made for a seamless transition to the Corner Market (formerly MKTC Consulting) team. Today, she leads consumer relations for Corner Market's partners, as well as all operations for the agency.

Sami lives outside of Philadelphia, P.A. with her husband.
