Pierson began her food journey as a child in Central America later to open Ger-Nis International LLC, a fair-trade, organic fruit & vegetable distribution company with an emphasis on fresh herbs. To further her desire to teach others about healthy living and eating, Pierson opened the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb, specializing in a wide range of recreational cooking and educational classes for adults and children; promoting healthy eating and living habits through hands on and lecture style classroom environments. She is fully committed to the community, as well as the planet, focusing on the entire cooking and eating process, from grower to “cooker.” In addition to traveling the world seeking organic and fair-trade conversation for her business, she is a noted cooking instructor focusing on fresh herbs as well as an extremist in proving that the art of eating and cooking well is a relatively simple process and just takes enthusiasm and some tidbits of knowledge. She has specialized in children’s cooking classes for many years and believes children are seeking better food knowledge and is always up for the challenge. Besides being a passionate teacher of fresh herbs, organics and fair-trade, she enjoys spice (in food and life), good conversation and debates, kickboxing, the ocean and surfing, and submersing herself in the food and culture of the world.
