Started in the Natural Food business in 1977 working for Grimm's Health Food Store which was at the time the oldest health food store in Kentucky.
Moved to Lexington KY in 1984 and started working at GFC in Sept. 1984. Went from cashier to Grocery Manager in 1985 when the co-op re-did itsself.
Thru-out the years have done two stints as Merchandising Manager also, as well as been thru two location moves.
I have attended every NCGA CAP & CO+ meeting since its inception.
Once I was introduced to natural-health foods I stayed, because I saw that people were actually helped. As long as co-ops help people and keep heart, they will always have a great purpose in this world.
