A native of North Carolina, I grew up on my parents' and grandparents' farms so my connection to land flows in my blood. I have worked in adolescent mental health for over 15 years, but my real passion lies in cultivating community by cultivating the earth. For the past 10 years, I've co-managed a community garden with my husband on our little slice of heaven in West Asheville, NC. I'm currently working towards a Masters of Entrepreneurship through Western Carolina University with plans to open a fabulous & funkly all-local roadside produce stand, market and gardens (Ujima Market).
