I believe strongly in the value of food cooperatives to provide healthy, high-quality food, products and resources to a community and am excited to be running for a seat on the Breadroot Board of Directors. I have significant experience working as an investment banker, organizational consultant, nonprofit executive director, and small business owner. The depth and breadth of these experiences have strengthened my ability to inspire vision, to bring people together, and to develop successful partnerships. Over the last 30 years, I have been committed to purchasing organic produce, grains, beans, and products and am aware of trends in availability and quality. I will work with the Board, staff and members to strengthen and expand the co-op to meet the needs of the community as we find our way through a changing environment.
