Women's Resource Center in Alamance County is Delighted to welcome our March Speaker

Ashlie Thomas

 "The Mocha Gardener"

Ashlie Thomas is an author, food security and gardening advocate, and entrepreneur known on social media as The Mocha Gardener. Her blog has been featured on popular sites and magazines such as NBC News, Taste of Home, Epicurious, MindBodyGreen, Country Living, Country Woman, Apartment Therapy, and House and Home. Even more, she has engaged in partnerships with companies such as Accuweather and UNC Health.

For nearly seven years, Ashlie worked in the scientific research sector and managing healthcare-based projects at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Though her academic training is in biology and chemistry, she is also currently undergoing training as a certified health and wellness coach through Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Since leaping full-time into entrepreneurship, you will find Ashlie consulting and working with organizations to help bridge the gap between food security and chronic diseases in underserved and low-resourced communities. Using her passion for gardening and training in health coaching she seeks to bring awareness through practice to growing issues of food insecurity, while empowering and educating others on how to take control of their wellness through growing the very thing that sustains them…good, nutritious, food.
