We’re very excited to bring on the newest member of our team, Jessica Allen!

Jessica is a health nut with a science background. She earned her Bachelors of Science in Nutritional Sciences and Behavior at The University of Texas at Austin.

She researched Food Systems Education, focusing on effective, sustainable nutrition programs, in collaboration with the Sustainable Food Center of Austin, TX.

Jessica has also kindled her passion for nutrition by completing the Valley Organic Growers Association (VOGA) Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training; working on farms, orchards, and vineyards in Colorado, Texas and Hawaii; cheffing vegan, gluten free desserts for a local food truck; and leading nutrition programs in gardens, kitchens, farmers markets, and greenhouses.

She’s excited to join the Butter Beans team to put in action her belief that providing opportunities for communities to interact more closely with whole foods engenders pride and respect for themselves and their communities.

We’re excited to see Jessica’s talents enrich our wellness programs and communities!
