One of the major reasons I moved from the East Coast to the Willamette Valley was the draw of world-class wines, abundant accessible local foods, and a thriving beer scene. I never visited Oregon before, but read stories of the vibrant culture rooted to practicing and advocating for sustainable local food systems. It’s no surprise that I moved, food simply put is my passion – and I want to share it with locals and visitors. I’m excited to start marketing this agricultural heartland to the world through the Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted brand!

My personal mission is to see that more people have a positive relationship with the food they eat. One way to fulfill that is by connecting myself to the bounty of good food that is grown and crafted in this region and be an advocate for it within my community and the rest of the world. I believe that the Willamette Valley has the ability to become a true food destination for adventurous and conscious souls that actively seek an experience with the food they eat.

We are lucky to live in the Willamette Valley, a place that is incredibly rich with local food producers who care deeply about good, clean, fair food. Repeatedly I’ve witnessed the power that local businesses have to bring real change to our food system.I’m excited to be involved with the launching of the Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted brand in support of these businesses.

Everyone eats. We all have a food story, which makes our food system work so powerful. After working to promote local farms for over a decade and being a partner in the genesis of Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted, I have joined the WVSFA board to see our regional food brand launched!
