Karyn holds a B.A. from Boston University in biology and an MBA in environmental management from the University of Washington Foster School of Business and ESCP Europe. She is an engaging and passionate, sought-after speaker and has spoken near and far about fresh food as a right, not a charity or a privilege. She is a proud mom of a 18-year old daughter who loves to eat her Kentucky-grown spinach.
Mary, fondly known as Miss Mary, is a founder of the Shawnee Neighborhood Fresh Stop Market. In her role as Uber Farmer Liaison Mary guides and assists all of the Fresh Stop Markets in how to recruit and build relationships with farmers, to negotiate prices, and to create the logistics necessary to get farm-fresh food to everyone. Mary knows more about local food logistics than anyone in the region, and she is a recognized food justice leader. Mary’s favorite vegetable is green beans.
Amy is the proud mom of two boys who love to eat their Kentucky veggies.
Sarah lives in New Albany with her partner Michael and her son Theo, along with various dogs, cats, goldfish, hamsters, and six very spoiled chickens. She is always interested in talking about her favorite kale recipes.
