Red Sox nutritionist on MassVentures-backed company, Segterra

Excerpts from Xconomy:

Like a lot of people in New England, Tara Mardigan didn’t get much sleep Sunday night.

Unlike a lot of people, Mardigan is team nutritionist for the Boston Red Sox. Asked what she put in Gomes’s cereal yesterday, she jokes that it was “100 percent natural.”
