About Our Team


The names behind the faces you see in the shop!

Jen Doran

Shop Assistant

Jen is a big lover of nature and the outdoors, whatever the weather.  From a young age she's been fascinated by the human body and in turn, the food that fuels it - from this stemmed a love of organic, seasonal and where possible local food.  Jen is pursuing yoga teaching, with a keen interest in learning more about a self-sufficient lifestyle and how to live in harmony with our environment. She'll be hosting yoga on Sunday mornings in Small Changes from May 6th


Dan Connor


Dan is the man in the Small Changes Urban Garden. Currently studying archaeology, Dan is a member of the Horticulture Society in UCD. He does an excellent job tending to the plants there as well as in our little patch, and we think the farmers' hat suits him very well. Good man, Dan!

Peadar Rice


Peadar is hands-on when it comes to the running of the shop. If he's not to be found behind the till, making juices & smoothies, or stocking produce, he's probably out the back tending to our urban garden or making displays for the shop with reclaimed materials.  He's also a director at Forest Friends Ireland, a keen supporter of the Dublin Cycling Campaign and having grown up in Rath Cairn Gaeltacht, Co. Meath Peadar loves an auld chat as Gaeilge.

Brigid Maher

Shop Assistant

Brigid works in the shop one day a week but is always popping in and out to lend a hand. She loves a chat both in English and as Gaelige, all the better if you're a fan of Bruce Sprinsteen...she's his biggest fan/stalker!

JR Doyle

Content Management 

With a background in social care, content creation, community management, and a goal to be kinder to the planet JR feels right at home working at Small Changes. When she's not in the shop on Wednesdays she's building websites like this one and creating our online content. Got a good idea for collaboration? For anything content related chat to JR at jr@smaillchanges.ie
