About Hand-Grown Greens
I spent the first decade of my adulthood working in a hospital setting as a registered nurse. Caring for the chronically ill led to serious reflection on what it means to be healthy.
Working as a nurse, I was doing something good, but deep down in my gut I knew I had something more to give. Becoming a mother gave me the motivation and the courage to find that something more.
I stepped away from a career based on treatment of illness in order to devote myself to building health. I believe whole-heartedly in the Hippocratic adage:
Some fun facts about me...
► I’m a 9 (any one else obsessed with the enneagram?)
► I’m a second generation farmer
► I’m blessed to work from home with my kids
► I love to bake
► I’m happiest when my hands are dirty
► In another life I loved to scuba dive
► After traveling the world, I’m living back on the very farm I grew up on
