In another life Libby studied and worked in the Interior Design field. It wasn’t until 2013 that she found her true calling in selling juice concentrates for Greenwood, where she was hired on despite her loyalty to the Green Bay Packers. Her design career has been relegated to a hobby for home projects that are never ending. In her free time she likes to squeeze in a few exercise classes a week when she isn’t running her two children to baseball or dance classes. Thank goodness her husband is the chef in the family. Developing relationships with customers over the last several years has been a joy for her, so please give Libby a call to catch up and answer any of your juice concentrate or aseptic questions.

There is not an aspect of Greenwood that Jim is not regularly involved in. Jim loves travel, ethnic cuisine (especially spicy food!), history, peoples and cultures and political philosophy. He loves working for Greenwood because he loves the wholesome and delicious products we sell. We have an interesting mix of unique and excellent people who we care about doing the right thing for our customers and for each other. I love the bewildered look I get when people ask me what I do for a living and I say “I sell juice”.
