I was born and raised in Nashville, TN. I received my bachelors of science from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC (near Asheville) and majored in biology (minor=chemistry). I focused on plants and systems design. The more I learned about plants, the more I realized that soil is the foundation of plant health. The more I learned about soil, the more I understood that soil is the foundation of all health. As a soil professor said to a class once, “What does NOT come from soil?” I feel excited and inspired to be part of a company and community that helps to improve the soil around the city that I love, by creating high quality compost!
