About Our Team


The names behind the faces you see in the shop...



Peadar is hands-on when it comes to running of the shop and café. If he's not to be found behind the till, he's probably out the back making shop displays with reclaimed materials.  He's a member of  Dublin Cycling Campaign and having grown up in Rath Cairn Gaeltacht, Co. Meath, Peadar loves a chat as Gaeilge. Send any business related messages to peadar@smallchanges.ie


Shop Assistant

You may not believe it with the lack of accent but Ríonach is from Co. Cork.  Tá Gaeilge líofa aici.  She is studying multimedia in DCU, and is into photography and all things sustainability/vegan.  She's also not too bad at baking...but is cursed with a soya intolerance.  Soya substitute tips and recipes welcomed!


Shop Assistant

Brigid (a tad camera shy) works in the shop a couple of days a week but is always popping in and out to lend a hand. She loves a good chat both in English and as Gaelige, all the better if you're a fan of Bruce Sprinsteen...she's his biggest fan/stalker.


Brand, Content & Store Manager 

With a background in social care and content creation, 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 a few days a week, or finding new local suppliers, she's updating our website or creating content for our social media.  Got a good idea for collaboration? For anything content related chat to JR at jr@smallchanges.ie


Shop Assistant

Emer is 20 and is a travelholic, vegan, with a chocolate habit. She plays hockey and is very sporty(though doesn't watch sports)! Emer loves laughing and pretty much always has a smile on her face...a fun person to be around!



Café Assistant

Originally from Sligo, Elisa is passionate about getting outdoors and connecting with nature. After a few years living in South Africa and experiencing the drastic effects of climate change, she decided to leave her career in Physio to further educate herself and others on how best to live sustainably and ethically via a more compassionate approach which is achievable for everybody.


Shop Assistant & Artist

With a natural flair for freehand art and sign-writing, any of the (good) posters and (neat) signs in the shop are accredited to Nadia.   If you'd like a chat in Polish, Nadia is fluent and she is studying Business Computing if you're looking for a genius programmer in a few years!
