Former Full-time Working Mom is Behind a Tech-enabled Canister that Cools Breast Milk On The Go

Amberlee Venti already had experience as a working mom when she took a promotion at her outpatient mental health clinic five years ago, but the addition of her second daughter exacerbated challenges faced by many working parents.

Because she needed to be available to her staff nearly all the time at work, pumping proved difficult. And once she had, the community fridge in the clinic’s community counseling room wasn’t an opportune place to store it. The other option, she said, was an outdated camping-style cooler that would often leak water as it lost its chill.

“I remember one really crazy day at work, I looked at my Swell water bottle, and just had the idea,” Venti said.
