WHO AM I?
I am Lonica. I am a passionate, experienced entrepreneur (a client nicknamed me "The Alpha Marketer") who embraces change and challenges. Inspired from a young age to be in business, I loved to read Fast Company and Entrepreneur magazine instead of watching TV. I managed my family's jewelry store and manufacturing business at age 19. Then at age 21, I started my first business, an eco-retail store, and made it an early goal to bring new organic textile and bodycare products to the retail marketplace, even if I had to create the products myself. I went on to found several retail stores and e-commerce websites. I created several lines of products for my own company, and designed and branded for other large companies.
I am continually excited about finding what is needed, and then bringing healthy, ground-breaking products and services to consumers in an innovative way. (My nickname from a colleague is "The Energizer Bunny".) I regularly consult with start-ups in the textile, food, and tech industries to guide the first steps of the new company towards success. My knowledge and passion for organic and natural products led me to move to the food industry. The last few years I have spent working primarily with FoodChain ID as Key Account Manager and becoming an technical expert in Non-GMO Project verification.
I help established international businesses realize increased revenue in existing and new areas. My passion for business development is undeniable and I want to work with you and your company next!
