Betty grew up in Albuquerque, NM where she learned to eat everything with green chili. She moved to Seattle to earn an art degree and began working as an organic gardener after graduating. She followed her dream to farm and surf and bought a one-way ticket to Hawaii. She landed at a small healing center in Maui where she learned from experts in natural medicine and herbalism. Working with such great teachers she discovered a passion for plant medicine.
After a few years on Maui she moved to Virginia with plans to return to school and be near family. Here she became a yoga instructor and returned to work in wellness and organic foods at MOM’s Organic Market.
She recently relocated to Boulder, happy to be near the mountains again after 3 years in Washington DC. She brings over 10 years of experience in the world of wellness and is grateful to have found Alfalfas Market.
