Laura G.Running this business for almost 2 years
I'm a passionate bee-keeper, environmentalist, marketer and mother. Between leading up a marketing team at HackerRank, taking care of my family, and running this business, I began to feel overwhelmed. I decided that until my responsibilities to my children lessen, I need to give up this part of my life. I would love to see this business go to someone who is passionate about delivering quality, all natural, sustainable products to customers.
