Soil to Soul Entrepreneur, Author, Restaurateur, Eco-Bohemian.

I used to be an East Coast, upper-middle-class Jewish American Princess. Then times changed, and I changed with them. In the mid-70s, I got turned on to environmental activism and organic farming. I began to realize how my lifestyle and diet affected me and the world. Not one to sit back and feel helpless, I took action. 

In 1980, I started one of the first organic school garden programs in the nation. I loved working with inspiring young minds that could make a positive difference in the world. Simultaneously, I ran a profitable two-acre organic farm and bakery business. After six years, mixed in with my alternative college education, I branched out into the business world with unbounded energy and commitment. My passion and desire to help heal the soil, my soul, and the Earth, lead me to become a Soil to Soul Eco – Bohemian Entrepreneur.

“Since the Ice Age, nothing has changed the world faster than business.
It is ethical businesses, led by morally courageous people, that can rapidly transform our world for the better.”

 My Story

 

Baking Across The Country

In 1982, after a beautiful, yet weary road trip across America, I ended up in stunning Homer, Alaska. I literally baked my way to Alaska. Out of an old laundry truck with a small propane oven, I baked and sold bread for gas money. In Homer, I founded the first natural foods bakery and cafe in the state. I was 25 years old and on fire. At 27, I married my head baker, and together we grew the Fresh Sourdough Bakery & Cafe. At the peak of the restaurant’s history, we employed 45 people, served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and offered catering and wedding services. 

 

Staying True to my Values

In 1992, my precious son was born. During my pregnancy, I had an entrepreneurial surge, which ignited my visionary energy, and I created a line of baking mixes and the first organic hot cocoa in the nation under the AH!LASKA brand. The first national organic chocolate syrup followed, along with other products. During this time, I also published my first book, Yummy Recipes ~ Wilderness Wonders for Kids and Adults. I was the CEO of AH!LASKA for ten years. My experience in the natural foods industry fortified me for what was to come. 

My purpose—to make a positive difference in the world. 
My mission—to help people understand how the food we eat affects everything, not just our bodies.
