What Words Have Changed Your Life?

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

How Do You Want to Change the World?

I want to empower people to be able to grow their own food and find a deeper connection with plants.

Why Does the World Need More Leaders with An Entrepreneurial Mindset?

So that they solve problems differently than those before them.

What Is Your Proudest Moment in Business?

The day I launched my website, over 20 people posted a link to it with kind and supportive words. People I didn’t even know began reposting it with excitement for what I was doing. On this day, I was so proud of the work I had done and the support I had to keep going.

What Do Others Need to Know about Babson?

Even if it doesn’t seem like your interest is a priority here, as long as your priority is taking action, you can be successful here. I launched a business in an industry (soil amendments) that no one here knows anything about or appreciates, but I have had incredible support and resources in the Babson community, because people here recognize passion.

How Do You Define Entrepreneurship?

Living your passions through every opportunity possible and enabling others to do the same.
