Welcome!

Center for Peace and Justice

This is where it all started: I headed up a campaign at my university to become fair trade certified. After two years of hard work, we received it!

Generate for Generations

I worked in Uganda with a local collective. I learned about what fair trade means on the ground and how to best support artisans once I returned home!

Ten Thousand Villages

This brought me to managing a fair trade store and entering the retail space. Since then, I love sharing my knowledge at trade shows and through blogs!

Let's live in a way that doesn’t hurt other people, animals, or the environment but instead, positively impacts this world. And let's help each other to build a beautiful community while we're at it.
