Born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley, I grew up with a lot of exposure to the food and agriculture industry. Produce stands on the side of farm fields and food manufacturing facilities surrounding many drives around town, I was always interested in how food was made. If there is ever an opportunity to get a farm or factory tour, sign me up!

Outside of work you can find me hiking, walking my dog, traveling or enjoying an iced latte at a local cafe.
