Q: How are you involved with ASAP and local food and farms?
I began volunteering with ASAP in 2016. I am a Farm to Fork Insurance Agent in WNC so I am connected to the community by occupation, but also by passion. I chose to focus on farms, food manufacturing, craft beverage, restaurants, and food retailers because I love being part of protecting and connecting. Personally, I grew up in middle Tennessee with farming cousins and enjoyed many weekends helping out (or at least enjoyed the freedom of walking their many acres of pasture).
