Irma Gomez

Assistant Director Customer Service, Markon
“I’ve been working in some form of agriculture all of my adult life—from seed to sales. I didn’t set out to work in this industry, but when I think about it, I realize how blessed I am to have landed in this industry. It aligns with what is important to me: healthy living, passion, and hard work. We provide something that’s good for people and the older I get, the more I realize it’s not just about me, it’s about us. A bonus is that I’ve met a lot of wonderful people along the way.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
