Love brought me home…

I grew up in Clovis and was lucky enough to enjoy the sweet taste of small-town living and delicious peaches from our local fruit stand. 

At age 18, I moved to the Bay Area to attend design school. For a brief stent, I thought the fast-paced lifestyle was what my heart wanted. After years of commuting and never quite connecting, I finally made the terrifying decision to go back to my roots. 

I met my husband shortly after returning to the valley and I found exactly what my heart needed. We got married in 2008 and settled in his hometown of Tulare, where he could pursue his career in farming. Over the years, we started our family, I followed my dream of becoming a photographer and I created a non-profit organization.

In addition to my amazing in-laws and added family, I quickly found that Tulare is filled with wonderful, loving, generous people who have all welcomed me with open arms. Tulare has not only embraced my mission of Sweet Nectar Society and supported my small photography business, but they extend their love and encouragement to anyone willing to try and work hard.

The people of Tulare are who make this place so special. We value the importance of family and community, and an honest day’s work. I feel extremely lucky to enjoy the sweet taste of small-town living once again.
