Frances had a cosmetology license while being a flight attendant with a major airline. Her life was great – she traveled the world doing hair. Then she went to Australia to be with her brother who was dying of cancer during his final months and learned that food could keep you alive or kill you. Changing his diet extended his life a little and her crusade began to learn about healthy food.

She moved to Arizona to open a hair salon and chatted with her clients about the importance of eating healthy. She began growing food in her backyard and selling to her neighbors. Connecting the dots of her farming with physical and financial health pushed her to start a nonprofit with a couple friends to teach people in her community how they can grow their own healthy food, be fit, and get financially smart!
