Meet the team

Over the past few years, Club Soda has grown from an idea into a Mindful Drinking Movement™ with tens of thousands of members around the world, supported by a small and busy staff team. We’re all mindful drinkers – some of us moderate and some of us don’t drink alcohol at all – and we all share a passion to create a world where nobody feels out of place if they’re not drinking alcohol.

Club Soda is a social business, so we’re committed to putting the needs and aspirations of our members first. We’re inspired by behaviour change science and our own experiences of changing our drinking. And we’re always looking for new ways to make it easier for you to change your drinking, whether you want to cut down, stop for a bit, or quit.


Anja is our beer writer and general taster of things. She helps us with the Club Soda Guide, and enjoys music, travel and adventure racing.

Jessy looks after the Club Soda Guide, so their time is filled with reading about drinks and fiddling with code. They always want to hear about new venues and good beers!
