I have 30 years in the natural foods industry.
From hiring to firing I have worked with every employee that passed through this store. A lot of the time this was the employees first job so I've
been a teacher is all aspects of running a grocery store. I have ordered in every department and have unloaded as well.
I keep reading and watching for new items and every year there is a food expo that educates us all about the newest items in the industry.
1971 became a Kundalini Yoga Teacher at Maha Deva Ashram.
1972 - 1980 Moved to Nebraska to start an Ashram. Where I opened a Golden Temple Restaurant
After almost 10 years I moved to Washington DC. I managed the Cloud Café at the Golden Temple Emporium.
1980 I started at the Bethesda Co-op. I have been there for the last 30 years.

I went through Redlands High School and then a couple of junior colleges San Bernardino Community College, and Yavapai Community College.
Most of my education came out of on the job training.
General book keeping skills, marking up and down products, keeping the margin to an acceptical level , I am a greeter of sorts...I recognize new and old customers and I go out of my way to say hello and welcome them to the store.
I teach and practice Kundalini Yoga. I like to hike, love to read. I love my children and grand children.
