Her daughter, Alexandra, joined her in the business in 2014. Since then, the duo has continued to achieve new heights, and their all-natural Alexian Pates and Specialty Meats are distributed in high-end stores around the globe! In this episode, we learn more about what it takes to be a woman in business, what it’s like to work in a family-owned business, why the food industry can be a great place to be, and advice on how to succeed in a family business or any business at all!
