I like to use the word ninja when it comes to describing my abilities to function in an entrepreneurial business. I’ve managed to have thousands of products and ingredients completely verified through the Non GMO Project Verification process. I was written up in several publications for my breakthrough as a young professional in the Natural & Organic Food Industry several years ago.

Currently consulting full time with nearly a decade industry experience in both Retail & Food Service Sales. Tradeshow & Consumer Event Management, Research & Development, Internal QA, marketing and Certification Program Director for facilities including: Non-GMO Project, Organic, Halal, Gluten Free Certified Humane, etc.

I previously co-owned and operated a small peri-urban farm with my better half in Lafayette, Colorado. We worked directly with local restaurants and farmer’s markets to bring the most nutritious and delicious organic food to our local neighbors, just like food should be. Having this hobby turn reality brought so much joy to my life. I’m also a certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach, helping people balance their health, wellness & happiness in this ever chaotic world we live in. I have two cute kids and when I have a minute of free time you can find me hiking, traveling, reading, writing & finding awesome farm to table restaurants around the country.

Published Interviews

I have been written up in the Specialty Food Association (June 2014), as well as interviewed with the Huffington Post for women leaders in business (July 2014). I also won a prestigious award in 2014: Fairfield County Business Journal’s 40 under 40 award, which is presented to successful young business professionals in Fairfield County (CT).
