Sunny has a background in public health research and health care administration but found her true calling in working intimately with nature while supporting local food and justice oriented communities. She, with her Lagotto Romagnolo Stella, hunts truffles professionally from November through April in the great Pacific Northwest. Her summer and early fall months are spent reforesting pastures, making wild plant medicines, and developing her 5-acre microfarm near Seattle into a thriving ecosystem that will host educational workshops, events, pop-up dinners, and retreats of all kinds.
