Becky’s (Supplement, Health and Beauty Care, Gifts, and Home Goods Manager) been with Nature’s Oasis for over 15 years, leading and growing her Departments. She has worked in the Natural Food industry since 1976, when she and her colleagues were still referred to as “Hippies” and stores were mainly cooperatives (co-ops) where staff would work enough hours weekly simply to get a discount. Her first paying position was managing a small health store in a mall followed by 22 years at Cayol Natural Foods in Downtown Minneapolis, along with time spent at several other stores. With 40 plus years of experience in the industry, Becky has managed all departments of large and small natural stores except produce.
Her love for the industry is evident by her extensive knowledge of products, enthusiasm to discuss health and nutrition, the number of people she knows when attending product shows such as Expo West in Anaheim, California, and most importantly, her authentic desire to help customers live their best lives.
Becky, a true Norwegian, is passionate about her dogs, cats, AND chickens. When not tending to her furry farm, you can find her buried in books, watching European crime shows, cooking and baking, sewing, and spending time with her beloved husband of more than 43 years and their son.
Though born in Fargo, North Dakota (true story), Becky is a Minnesotan at heart who holds multiple degrees from the University of Minnesota System of Colleges: Bachelor of Science in Pre-med, American Studies, and Non-Profit Management. She’s been studying herbs and Nutrition since 1975, is a Certified Nutritional Consultant, and to this day, is dedicated to expanding her natural and organic life.
