our team




Dee Ryan

Dee Ryan is a new member of I Love Juice Bar’s Operations team! Born in Tennessee, and raised in Arizona, Dee found her way back to the South in 2011 and lives in Nashville with her husband, two kids, and two golden retrievers, Kenny Rogers and Gravy Bones…one a little bit country and the other a little bit rock-n-roll!

Dee puts her energy into projects that enhance the in-store experience, so you will likely see her working on programs to build sales and guest loyalty, managing projects to help control expenses, and connecting with owners to share best practices.

She loves golden retrievers, mason jars, photography, interior design and anything with sequins. Dee spends her free time cooking for friends, color coding files, drinking good wine and vacationing with family.




Katie Carothers

Katie is a dorky Pacific Northwest Native that made her way out to Nashville in 2009. With a background in athletics and elementary education, Katie never expected to transition into the world of health and wellness. After discovering her colon-related illness, she focused on healing her body through plant-based nutrition alone. After a successful journey and a whole new outlook, she was left passionate about sharing her knowledge and love for the lifestyle Juice Bar promotes: health, balance and happiness! Most importantly…she is ALWAYS down to get a dance party started!

Ashlee Tidwell

Ashlee is an operations specialist who has been working alongside Katie to help train and open new stores. Originally, she was a music major but switched gears two years into school focusing on the hospitality industry. She also is very experienced in the health and fitness world, teaching yoga and barre class and being a certified running coach. She has focused her passions and her expertise into a wonderful role here at I Love Juice Bar!
