"In 2009 I walked away from Corporate America to begin mentorship on an organic vegetable farm in Louisville, KY. I learned to manage acres of produce and how to run a farm business.
In 2011 I founded Girl Next Door Farm in La Grange, KY where I sold $30K of fruits, veggies, and herbs on just an acre.
I was featured in The Woman Hobby Farmer book by Karen Lanier, the Courier Journal, and Manner & Lane Online Publication. I got to speak at University panels for “Minorities in Agriculture” and at the Convention center for “Women Veterans in Agriculture”. Such an honor!
In 2019 I formed Guidance for Growers Consulting LLC to empower more people to grow food successfully, and enjoyably. Since then we have had over 40 Garden Consultations in the Louisville area with 21 edible garden installations. We've had over overwhelming attendance in our online courses and local workshops
My clients expressed the need for more "lifestyle items" to accompany their garden fun so in 2020 I introduced a line of garden merchandise and gifts! I'm SO grateful to be able to serve in so many different capacities. Nurturing plants brings the deepest satisfaction I've ever known and now I get to share that energy with you."
