Carolyn Ives
Carolyn IvesChief Operating Officer (COO)
Our COO found her love for plants and the environment in her mother’s garden when she was young. She fell in love with the smell of soil and the way dirt collected under her nails after a hard day’s work. Carolyn discovered the world of hemp in her teens and immediately became enthralled with the complexity and benefits of this humble plant. She graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Environmental Studies in May of 2018 and decided to go into business with her father to form MACRuDan Organics.She hopes to help anyone that has been touched by hardship find their path to happiness.
