Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Georgie spent her early years wondering why the food we ate felt so far from home. Moving out west to attend college at the University of California, Los Angeles, she began to experience life with more geographic space, closeness to nature, and developed a strong love for the land we live on. Georgie spent much of her time in college traveling internationally with the aid of a pilot father, and as her horizon's broadened, so did her appreciation for the earth holistically and the rich culture it contains. She graduated from school with a degree in Economics and Accounting, and began working in San Francisco as a forensic accountant. After a few years in a corporate setting, Georgie decided to chase what she found most important and began working in agriculture. She traveled to Costa Rica and Colombia, working on small-scale permaculture inspired farms, before settling briefly in Belgrade, Montana to farm at the foothills of the Bridger mountains at an organic goat dairy and vegetable farm.
Georgie found her way to Steamboat Springs in the fall of 2021 and quickly came to find the community and the land her home. She spent the summer of 2022 in Amagansett, New York completing a rigorous apprenticeship at Amber Waves Farm. An avid learner, Georgie loved intimately observing the way things functioned - how the farm manager prioritized what to do, how the seedlings in the greenhouse developed their first true leaves, and how the winds blew in the warm air of summer. While learning at the scale of 20+ acre farm, she was exposed to a variety of farming practices. Georgie determined that she wanted to lead a farming operation, and lead one which benefits the land as much as it benefits our appetites.
Georgie is passionate about growing food for the community, and feels strongly about helping people develop a relationship with their food from seed to plate. She loves bringing people together and enabling food access for all. When not at the farm, you can find Georgie skiing laps at the resort, hiking up at Rabbit Ears, cooking a farm fresh meal for friends, or attempting to surf one of the holes in town.
