Carmel Valley, California
“I’ve been inspecting since 2004, exclusively for CCOF. I love complicated multi-departmental clients, the more challenging, the better. Inspecting is rarely boring, and I like learning new things about farming and industrial processes.
For many years I owned a restaurant on the East Coast, and I also wrote travel guides on Southern Africa for a British publishing firm. I lived in Africa for six years and it was while running a safari camp that I become interested in organic farming.
Although inspecting is my full-time job, I also work as a culinary consultant for Earthbound Farm. I have collaborated on three cookbooks with EBF and develop recipes every month for their website and blog.
When I'm not on the road inspecting, I live in Carmel Valley with my husband, David, and Charly and Silkie, my dog and cat.”
