A Southland lawyer-turned lettuce farmer is looking forward to devoting all her time to expanding her hydroponics business.
Aviation lawyer Angela Beazer, who has been working for the Civil Aviation Authority part-time, was a recent recipient of a $2.5 million Provincial Growth Fund loan.
While flying high, the 45-year-old has her feet firmly on the ground. With plans afoot to triple the lettuce farm's production, it had become clear to her she could no longer do both jobs and would have to quit one.
"But now I'm ready for change. I've been trying to juggle both, but they're not complementary."
