Natural foods and the importance of buying local.

Beginning in 1984, Rhonda got her first job out of college with Coborn’s. After moving around for a few years, she thankfully ended up back at Coborn’s. Rhonda has continued to work and grow her expertise in natural and organic foods for nearly 20 years. She continues to meet new people and obtain new education to continue building interest in buying locally. She believes it is the cornerstone of the natural market.
