Caitlin Makary (DANK Bread) will share her journey making banana bread for her rock climbing friends to accidentally launching a successful food service company. Courtney Blodgett (Energizing Impact) will share how her love for the outdoors led to a passion for clean, efficient energy to help slow climate change and preserve outdoor spaces for future generations.
