Director of Brand IntegrityDownload V-Card
I grew up in the southeastern town of Brunswick, Georgia. Although my accent won’t give it away, I can’t turn down biscuits or pimento cheese. From the marshy coast of GA to Seattle, it’s clear that life around water and beautiful views are a must for me.
What Inspires Me:
My friends inspire me; from my experiences of living and working across the country, I have met amazing people who I maintain relationships with and my friend network is never a dull scene.
Guiltiest Food Pleasure:
Cheese is a mainstay in my life and fortunately there are so many varieties to satisfy my cravings! Macaroni and cheese is the perfect vehicle to blend cheeses and other flavors that I could easily eat it every day…if my nutrition background didn’t keep me in check.
Areas of Specialization:
I have traversed the food industry through contract manufacturing R&D and commercialization, CPG and Foodservice co-branding partnerships, and technical consulting support of high growth snack food and beverage brands. At CuliNex, I work as a project manager and technical support resource bringing benchtop creations in to full scale reality.
When I'm Not in the Office:
Outside of work, the mountains and rivers of the PNW call my name. Depending on the season, you can find me whitewater kayaking, hiking, or cross country skiing. When I stay closer to home, I try to develop my green thumb. Fortunately the growing conditions here are friendly to a newbie gardener!
