Our Team

Life is great. Cheese makes it Whey better!



  • Robin is our hard working Production Manager. She is fully in charge of cheese production so her life revolves around the making of all of the cheeses. She has a Bachelors Degree from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. She is our steady cheesemaking leader and our in-house queen of fermentation!

  • Jaicen is our multi-talented Department Supervisor. He supervises harvesting of cheeses from the cave, packaging, and outgoing shipping. If you ever see him at the farmers market, you will also see what amazing customer service skills he has. We love his effervescence!

  • Tom is our Brand Ambassador. He helps to make aged cheeses during the week and handles our wholesale accounts. He is a graduate of the CIA Culinary Program, an Army veteran, a heart transplant recipient, and a true renaissance man!

  • Dorothy is the newest team member and she brings lots to the River Whey table. She is a graduate from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors Degree in Food Science. She makes cheese, leads projects for scientific analysis of our cheeses, and runs the market booth. Lots of hats to wear for our science whiz!

  • Kathleen is the yin to our yang. She is a co-founder of River Whey and we would be lost without her. She has moved into retirement, but her spirit is alive and well in the creamery!

  • Susan is well . . . Susan. This whole idea was her crazy dream! (See Our Story for more.)
