What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My kids. Literally. They literally climb on top of me and pull me out of bed because they are ALWAYS hungry.

What would you be doing if you didn’t work in production?
I would be a Clinical Herbalist. Actually, I am one part time. Studying plant medicine and healing has been a serious calling for me for the last 10 years, and I’ve been working with people on their health issues for the last 5. I’m currently taking on new clients if you would like to book an appointment.

Why Journeyman?
I love working at Journeyman because I know I can have an impact here, just like everyone else. We’re a small company and everyone’s a leader. I can use my whole brain here, have wild creative ideas, but then also dive down into the nitty gritty of solving a technical problem- it’s great. I also like Journeyman because the work we do is real. We strive to tell genuine human stories and that means a lot to me.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I couldn’t decide. Still can’t.

How do you find rejuvenation and balance?
Long walks.
