I hold a B.S. degree from UCSB. I moved to San Diego for a career in marine biology. The craft beer scene inspired me to home brewing. Volunteer keg washing slowly evolved into a full time quality control management position in beer. At a lab training seminar I met the CEO of Local Roots Kombucha and soon began a part time position. I now work full time in kombucha quality assurance, ingredient procurement and compliance. Mine is a classic tale of fish to beer to kombucha.
