With a focus on direct procurement that supports regenerative farming, I can look at your supply chain and purchasing processes to make your partnerships stronger and more impactful. With over ten years of operations experience in food, natural beauty and CPG companies, I can help with a variety of projects that focus on making supply chains shorter, more transparent, and more resilient.
I'm open to working with startup food, beverage, natural beauty, or CPG companies, hospitals, schools, nonprofits and universities. Rates, timelines, and project sizes are flexible.
that the time for sustainability is over. Brands need to use their buying power to support farms practicing regenerative agriculture. Regenerative agriculture can "reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle" (regenerationinternational.org). I have over 10 years of experience connecting farmers to companies looking to establish direct partnerships with regenerative farms. I also have extensive experience in directing operations and supply chains, project management, and product development.
my food journey by studying Sustainable Food Systems at UC Berkeley, in the city where the food revolution started, and have done a number of things since.
My husband and I live on a 5 acre homestead in San Diego County. We are learning how to grow our own food, manage our land, and take care of our animals (10 Ancona ducks, 2 Maremma puppies, and hopefully goats and bees soon). I have a permaculture design certificate and a water harvesting certificate.
I love to get outdoors — ocean swimming, running, hiking, paddle boarding, and gardening. I'm an avid home cook, and enjoy foraging for ingredients and trying to perfect my sourdough bread recipe.
