You could say I grew up a little country and a little rock and roll.
Mom grew up on a farm in Wisconsin. Dad is from Chicago. My maternal grandfather was a Wisconsin dairy farmer and Percheron (draft horse) man, and my paternal great grandfather had a horse-drawn milk route in Chicago, so I’m one of the lucky 2% with direct ties to agriculture.
Authenticity and the ability to connect dots is essential in the complexities of navigating Farm to Table conversations. What I know isn’t just from school. I grew up living it.
Intentional career choices helped shape my approach, thinking, and network to maximize outcomes. My unique background includes leadership and spokesperson experience in agriculture, supermarket (including 6,000 international independent operators and the number one retailer in Chicago), media (traditional and social), and hospital-based health and fitness centers.
I’m an internationally recognized and innovative farm to table expert with the unique ability to connect farmers, retailers, consumers and other relevant organizations and individuals. I collaborate with other experts to build, execute, and evaluate strategies, engaging programs, and experiential learning with the goal of improving health outcomes while increasing trust and sales. Current clients span the food supply chain.
Inspiring people literally from farm to table. This is what I do: Connect the dots from farm to fork in a way that people are inspired to engage and take action.
Projects and ongoing long-term assignments: Writing and Presentations, Strategy and Implementation, Spokesperson – Social and Traditional Media (B2B, B2C, B2B2C)
