Sheba loves food, people and our Mother Earth. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, she grew up in an Ethiopian household eating dinner prepared by her mother almost every night. Through her, Sheba learned the true meaning of nourishment.
Upon completing her studies at the University of Virginia, Sheba realized her true passion is research in preventative health. As a sourdough bread baker, she learned through natural fermentation how important food processing is towards health.
Overall, Sheba believes food is a necessity that should not be taken for granted. She is grateful to be a part of a community that realizes this and is taking action to combat food waste.
