Vegetarian since 2008.
I come from a family of amazing cooks, but I never had any great talent with food. Over the last several years, though, I grew more passionate about what we put into our bodies, and of course, became more interested in how to prepare food.
I worked for Whole Foods from 2014 until 2016 in the Prep Foods department, which was a really incredible learning experience.
In early 2016, I moved on to be the Admin Assistant and social media gnome for a locally-sourced grocery in Memphis, and in April 2017, I became Assistant Store Manager. I loved my job, and what I did allowed me to work with some of the kindest and coolest people and product-makers in the Mid-South. I have since moved on to assume the role of Local Product Buyer at different small business.
Currently, I represent not only my own outlets, but also Memphis Grind, and Plant-Based Memphis, a social media resource I founded as a way to supply information and recommendations to those who want to pursue a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle in Memphis and the surrounding areas.
