Introduction I'm a southern girl from GA who has spent a lifetime getting to a dream. My first job was teaching English in High School. I couldn't pass up an opportunity to teach in China and I enjoyed an incredible adventure living and teaching there. I married in China and returned to the US to give birth to my daughter, Alexandra. Eventually, I ended up on the west coast working for Microsoft and living in Redmond, WA. I divorced and spent about 7 years being a good mother and employee. In 2007, I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and became seriously ill. While ill, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was a long journey through poor health, but it convinced me that I needed to put my high-paying, stressful job aside and pursue my dream, to own my own farm. It hasn't quite turned out that way, but it's pretty close. Instead of a farmer, I'm a rancher. Instead of being alone, I'm with a wonderful cowboy. Instead of a farm, I own a beautiful ranch in Oregon. Instead of spending my days in the office, I spend my days outside. I am now dedicated to raising food that is Nature's absolute best for people who want the best of health. I'm living my dream and I'd like to share it with you.
