Growing up my family lived all over the country, from Texas to Delaware, West Virginia to Michigan. This forced me at an early age to constantly meet new people, make new friends, and learn and adapt to new surroundings. Although it was difficult to really plant roots, I discovered that starting over and over again added a valuable skill set in adaptability and courage to start new ventures.
Upon completing my college degree in Health Policy Administration from Penn State I joined the team at a wonderful Long Term Care facility as their Director of Admissions. My daily interactions were with families going through the painful realization that their loved one required 24-hour care. My role was to listen, educate, assist, and support these families with their difficult decisions.
I then took quite a few years off to start and raise a family. My husband Alex and I, married 27 years, have 4 wonderful and unique children who are all at different stages of their life's journey. My skills of listening, educating, assisting, and supporting were put to good use and further strengthened in the daily challenges of raising happy, healthy children.
Looking to find a new opportunity to help my community, and with the support and collaboration of my husband’s vast business and financial knowledge, we decided to enter the world of CBD, which was just beginning to become popular for its many health and wellness benefits. Our task was to thoroughly research this new supplement and seek out the highest quality sources for producing premium, natural, beneficial CBD products, thus began Palm Organix™
The Palm Organix™ mission today is much like my early goals, to listen, educate, assist, and support, for all those seeking a natural alternative to promote their wellness needs. This also prompted us to open a retail location where we can interact directly with new people and have them feel comfortable knowing their CBD journey begins with us.

I am blessed to have grown up in Southern California. Not in a big city, but a small town where people rode their horses to restaurants, and you waved at everyone driving by. I still remember watching my Pop seal a deal with a handshake, and he’s never gone back on his word, and that’s the way we were raised. My family is supper close, always have been, and we’re all blessed with good old common sense. Sports always came easy to me, if I wasn’t at a game or practice, you looked for me in the shop, art, history, or maybe english departments. Throughout my childhood, as an All-American in college, and into my 40’s I have struggled with my health. Constant illness, respiratory conditions, seasonal struggles, stomach discomfort, headaches and the list goes on, along with the side effects and ineffectiveness of medications I took.
I grew up building our houses with Pop, so I’m pretty handy with tools, can fix or build just about anything, love building stuff for our house, checkin’ off my honey do list. I can operate just about anything that has wheels, tracks, or propellers. I have a fascination with history, and a rising curiosity for green technology. I love playing hockey and we love watching an LA Kings game. Enjoy watching all the kids in our extended family growing into there own unique and amazing little self’s. Prefer the desert or beach to the snow. I’m pretty good with the BBQ and smoker, and love gettin’ the family and close friends together. I’m on the board of directors for a few charities, volunteer as often as I can, and try my best to make sure the people we care about, know it.
I have always enjoyed traveling different and out of the way places, backroads and small towns. I want to walk the streets of those historic places I’ve read about, talk to the people, admire the architecture and surroundings, absorb the history of another time and place. I’ve got things I want to build, to make, things I never would of thought I could before. I want others to know that I was there, not because they feel pain from missing me. But because the help, knowledge, and the time we had, was a blessing that in some way brought them joy, a laugh, or happiness. Time is really the only thing we’re given, and you never know how much you got. I want to create more time, more us time, more family time, I never have enough of that.
I grew up in a family of hero’s. My grandfather was part of the greatest generation. A WW2 Marine, and served for thirty years in the United States Marine Corp. My father was in the Sheriff’s department for 38 years. My brother is now a Rear Admiral in the United States Navy, and has been serving for over 20 years. So as you can see, I have some hero’s in the family. But my big hero’s? Well this might surprise you, but they are women. My grandma, watched my “Tampa” board a ship and go off to war. Not just WW2, but some scuffles afterwards too, and stayed behind, doing it all, alone, and dreading the knock on the door. I watched my Mom kiss Dad when he went off to work, they didn’t have bullet proof vests back then, and any phone call after 8pm always turned her face white. My sister in law, though now days communication is much easier, was alone during my brothers many ship tours. She struggled with terrorism, and seeing the attacks on real time on CNN of somewhere he was deployed, waiting for his “I’m ok honey” texts. They are really my hero’s. And you can throw John Wayne, Lewis and Clark, Chief Joseph, and Abraham Lincoln in the mix, to name a few.
THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY
