She is a retired epidemiologist who spent her last working-for-pay years investigating and bringing to light the gaps in our regulation of pesticides.

She also is co-owner of White Swan Farm & Forge, which she operates with her husband, as well as an activist, a volunteer, and a grandmother to three beautiful children. She enjoys visiting her family in Brooklyn and Boston and growing and cooking food in the vibrant community of Cedar Grove, NC.
