In 2017 my family and I returned from living in the Peruvian Amazon where I was an advisor in Sustainable Bio-Trade and International Development. During our time in the Amazon I learned a great deal about many of the incredible plants as well as challenges facing farmers and indigenous communities there from unscrupulous buyers to fluctuating agricultural prices. I am motivated to be a reliable partner to those communities and use my company as a bridge to the export market to help improve livelihoods and forest conservation. In short, I am working to help them connect their valuable, healthy plant products to the world at large.
