First, tell us about your business and anything special we should know about it or you.
I am a healer, teacher, herbalist and nutritionist. I have worked with Hemp and Cannabis for many years. Its a long story to tell how I got here but it is interesting!
Why do you feel a connection to your work?
I am connected to the plants. I have always been connected to nature and learned about herbs and healing from my grandmother.
As a business owner, community is everything. In what ways do you serve your community and how has your community served you?
I am here with an open door for my community. The kettle is always on and I spend time with my people. I also try to support local fundraisers

What women inspire you and why?
All women inspire me!
What do you think are the most significant challenges for women business owners or women in leadership positions?
The overwhelming social pressure and male dominated corporations.
