Ariana is passionate about awakening people to the possibilities of abundance.
As Director of Growth, she empowers individuals and communities to connect deeper with the land around them through education and implementation of the transformative power of permaculture philosophies and principles that cultivate our local ecology.
Through business development, partnership building, and operational leadership, Ariana champions efforts to have more than enough healthy produce to feed a city through sustainable and regenerative gardening and cultivate conscious expansion through thriving sustainable lifestyles.
Ariana’s experience with Permaculture Design Certifications on-site at The Reed Center and online with High Sierra Permaculture, her passion for regenerative urban ecosystems and her vision for a more harmonious and abundant relationship between humanity and nature, combined with her corporate background, where she learned to initiate and expand partnerships to educate consumers through facilitating workshops and events that led to collaborative value exchange and growth, has equipped her with both the theoretical and practical knowledge to cultivate the Sustainable You mission through the wisdom of permaculture.
Stepping away from a traditional career path, she is grateful that her passions, purpose and hobbies align seamlessly with her role and Sustainable you values. Ariana finds joy in authentic conversations, camping, rock-climbing, travelling the world and the occasional Bluegrass Festival. When she’s not propagating sustainability and ecological gardening, you can find her barefoot in the mountains.
