Owner and director of Ger-Nis International, Nissa Pierson, finds solace in Central American cuisine, more than apt and willing to feast on it on a daily basis (which is unusually due to her distaste for regularity), having spent most of her childhood in Southern California. At 12, she learned love for the land and its people during her time in Nicaragua which in turn played a role in becoming a passionate advocate for fair-trade, organic products. Her other passions include good conversation and debates, kickboxing, the ocean and surfing, and submersing herself in the food and culture of the world. Contact Nissa
