Lisa Moeller is the daughter of Robert and Elsie Moeller.  She grew up with her brother and sister during the 1960’s in San Francisco, California.  At seventeen, Lisa moved to the Sacramento Valley and received a BS in Agronomy from the University of California at Davis.  Upon graduation she interned with the Dow Chemical’s Herbicide Division.  She then worked in the Midwest with DeKalb Swine Breeders before being transferred to North Carolina.   In 1988, her daughter Kelly was born and she began work at a local pickle company where she was employed for 25 years.  Her son Kyle was born in 1992 and both children were raised on her farm in the country.

In 2012, Lisa received a Master of Science in Food Chemistry from North Carolina State University.  Her research project involved evaluation of hamburger dill chips packaged in plastic versus traditional glass containers.  Her journeys have taken her around the world.  She went to Morocco to study how globalization is affecting women in Africa; she visited Costa Rica to study coffee and cacao production and India to better understand the procurement of pickles and peppers.  She has been to Europe on several occasions to learn more about where her great grandparents were born.

From watching her grandmother reuse the waxed paper in Rice Krispie boxes as a child to being a panelist at Duke University’s Sustainable Business and Social Impact Conference in 2012, there has been one theme – improving quality of life through heightened environmental and social consciousness.  Her passion and talents lie in taking all the lessons learned through time and space and turning them into meaningful projects with attainable goals.  Unlike Bill, she can neither play the guitar nor hit a golf ball far, but is optimistic about the potential impacts they can have on the food industry through their partnership in Fermenting Solutions International, LLC.  She still lives in Mount Olive, NC and can be contacted at:
