Roxanne earned her master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science with a minor in Chemistry from Utah State University. She then proceeded to work within the human food industry for over 12 years in research, product development, and quality assurance. Disenchanted with many of the conventional practices of our modern food industry, she started her own food science consulting firm in 2008. She made the transition to the pet food world while consulting for Answers Pet Food, and has since become a full time partner at Answers.
Roxanne is a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Farm to Consumer Legal Defence Fund which are dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism.
She and her husband live on their family farm in southern Oregon where they care for a small organic garden. Ame, their three year old Malamute, loves to roam the farm, find special hiding places to bury bones and chase the bull frogs back into their pond.
