    I grew up on a farm, rode horses professionally, won two national championships, trained a student to win a national championship, & managed our family equestrian business. But my life long dream has been to build a successful company to disrupt the food system. So I transitioned into management for a restaurant chain & strategy for a restaurant consultancy, before launching LolaBee's.

    BSN: Ursuline College. I have 31 years of business management experience. I founded an equestrian business, Maypine Equestrian Center, on our family farm in 1982. The Maypine team trained numerous horses and riders to win national championships and taught countless people the joy of riding. I sold this business in 2013 to concentrate fully on LolaBee's Harvest.
