In 300 characters or less describe your job:

I introduce anyone who serves food (buyers and chefs) to premium brands that create dynamite plant-based options for menus. Some are vegan alternatives, such as vegan bacon, and some are vegan by nature, such as quinoa. I am a one-stop shop for anyone looking to ‘beef’ up the plant-based options.

What are the top 3 characteristics you need to be good at your job:

  1. Knowledge of plant-based foods (I have a certificate in plant-based nutrition)
  2. Ability to get to decision makers
  3. Passion for healthy living.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in food?

I’m too passionate about fueling our bodies properly to sit back and watch the standard western diet kill us off.
