Director of Quality and Food Safety, 4Earth Farms
“As a young girl, I admired the way my grandmother used to make her famous peach jam. I will never forget her attention to detail as she peeled the fruit so delicately and the respect she gave each of her ingredients whenever she prepared it. Her ability to make a jam from those giant golden pearls and capture their wonderful flavor, all in one container, fascinates me to this day. Like my grandmother, I have learned to respect and appreciate our products. Now as an adult, I reflect on this experience and feel blessed to work alongside an industry full of compassionate, hard-working individuals. Our team’s dedication to people, produce, and the planet makes coming to work an absolute pleasure. It is an honor to be part of this organization and I look forward to continuing all the great work we do.”
“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.”
