Grace, Grit & Wit is my passion project as it relates to our relationships with the lives we lead as women. After many years learning about health, nutrition, and farming. I've taken what I've learned and created something that marries my business skills and the things I love most about agriculture.
I’m a woman who loves cowboy boots, horses, backroads, and open spaces. Growing up, my family managed 1200 acres in the midwest dedicated to livestock and crop production; you could say I was born with my love of farming, food and agriculture. Being a systems thinker, I know that when you find holes and empty spaces, there’s always an opportunity to fill them.
So in this past year, my search led to me to a last and final life assessment, knowing I had “one more big thing” I could commit myself to making. I just had to figure out what and who I was going to do it with. It turns out that was Grace, Grit & Wit, women's farming collective and horse ranch in Snohomish, Washington, to help women explore their relationships themselves, food and the land that feeds them.
I currently run an analytics company for food, agricultural and farming companies. So when it comes, to food, I know a lot about it. I've written about food for over a decade, and my expertise and writing has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Ad Age, Mashable, and PSFK. I also write about food on LinkedIn and show my farm on Instagram. I've studied nutrition and food science at Stanford and I'm earning my integrative medicine certification at University of Minnesota.
When old models don’t work, it’s time to create new ones. Welcome to the place where women are creating better ways to feed themselves and feed humanity. The cute animals are just a bonus!
