My Origin Story: Jessica Lynch, Partner

I'm for Alamance County which is a predominantly rural county in North Carolina. In a way, I come from a long history of entrepreneurship.

Yet, generation after generation had to settle for scraps, yearning to break free of the restraints placed on their labors.
