Our Story

Addie Gundry

Addie Gundry

Founder and CEO

Addie spent most of her career in the kitchen. She studied with Christian Etienne in a Michelin starred restaurant and honed her skills in kitchens in California and New York. She appeared on The Food Network, wrote for Martha Stewart Living, and designed food and beverage products at a Chicago innovation agency. Addie is the author of several cookbooks, making elegant recipes easy and approachable for any cook.

Three years ago, she had a son, and after that, a daughter. As a mom, Addie quickly realized how horrific public changing tables are so she put down her knives and left the kitchen! She founded Pluie and with the help of a talented team Addie set out to change the table.

Co-Founder and COO

Brittany designed premium treadmills, cross-trainers and exercise bikes found in health clubs and fitness centers around the world. After graduating from the renowned Kellogg School of Management, she pivoted from fitness to fishing and was the president of Crestliner.

She too never had a great public diaper changing experience while on-the-go with her young son. After leaving her successful career in the corporate world Brittany was introduced to Pluie founder Addie Gundry. The pair set out to change the table and make the public changing experience better for both children and caretakers.
