Karen Lee BS, MBA, RN
As owner of Sang Lee Farms for over 35 years I have become passionate about the food we grow, and how to enjoy vibrant health eating fresh seasonal foods. Incorporating the fresh organic vegetables from our farm into specialty prepared foods for our retail shop has only added to that knowledge and passion. My background in health care working with sick and dying patients as a registered nurse has particularly convinced me of the importance of food as the foundation of our health and well being. To educate and share this passion with others is now my focus and mission.
