| Our Founders |
In 2020, Chelsea Bernas and Dan Porter founded Muskoka Mudita - Chaga Tea.
Chelsea Bernas (Co-founder) grew up in quaint Magnetawan, Ontario. Magnetawan is a historic village located on the charming Magnetawan River. It was aptly named by the Algonquin people, ’Swiftly flowing River’.
Nature was in essence, who she is.
Dan Porter (Co-Founder) Dan's family has been on Lake Muskoka for over 70 years. Having loved and lost within that region, he wanted to pay his homage to his great-grandparents and grandparents alike. All of whom were entrepreneurial in their own right. With the recent passing of both Dan’s grandfathers, he knew it was time to take up the torch and cut a path to a better future for all.
Preston (VP R&D) has grown up in both Magnetawan and Toronto. He has a strong passion for the outdoors and is always taking the chance to explore. One of our best sales reps and biggest voices in the R&D department.
