Our FarmBox Team:

This love for food stayed with me as I grew up and moved to Paris. It was there that I really experienced what my mama meant by eating fresh. The Parisians have beautiful farmer’s markets every day and eat from the local baker and butcher shop.

I fell in love with this lifestyle – I learned to shop local and cook fresh. I tried to steer my life towards the “logical” path. I graduated from the Boston University Business School to end up.…working on a farm in Malibu! I earned my chef certificate a year later and haven’t looked back.

I’ve been sharing my love of agriculture and cooking ever since. When I’m not having fun running FarmBox, I teach cooking classes, volunteer at the Venice Family Clinic consulting on nutrition and health, do yoga and cook!

And if it didn’t look pretty, she wouldn’t eat it! But growing up in Utah had its culinary drawbacks. Utah is a beautiful state – but because of our amazing ski season, we don’t have fresh produce for most of the year. Moving to California changed my cooking all together.

Visiting the Santa Monica Farmer’s market was like visiting the Garden of Eden! I had never seen an heirloom tomato or tasted strawberries so sweet and juicy. I’ve loved cooking with California’s year-round fresh ingredients ever since.

I owned a marketing company for several years in Los Angeles but fell in love with the concept of FarmBox and decided to team up with Reisha. Now I’m excited to be working with Reisha and our local farmers both in LA and the Bay Area to better our community and environment.

Hours spent perusing the aisles of farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and sampling each variety, especially the lesser-known, more unusual ones like cherimoyas and apriums, are amongst my fondest memories!

Having returned from a 4-year diet of exclusively eating apples and oranges while I attended college in the Midwest, I no longer take California’s incredible access to local, organic produce for granted!

As your go-to gal for FarmBox SF, I hope to share my passion for supporting local farms, my foodie aspirations and dedication to environmental sustainability with my new neighbors!
