My husband, Ben, and I started our own business in 1989. It has grown from a fruit and vegetable farm into this thriving business now called Meadowbrooke Gourds.

I live here with my family on this beautiful 200 acre farm across from the retail store. Ben and I have three children. Brandon, Nathan and our youngest, Ashley. We also have two dogs, Awesome and Lucy.

Due to some health issues, I’ve cut back on the role I play here at the business. Helping to pick the new product designs for our catalog is one job I still do. I also help coordinate the product photo shoot and layout the catalog. In addition, I do some simple graphic designing.

I spend each day taking care of my family and home. Making my own schedule is a luxury I have. My hobbies are gardening, decorating my home and spending time with my dogs. I try to enjoy each day to the fullest.
