Lynn Jackson Incumbent
Through 20 years as an Ever’man member and 10 years serving on the Ever’man Board, I am committed to representing the Ever’man membership by promoting member value and a higher quality natural food shopping experience. I have held various positions on the Ever’man Board and understand that a cohesive Board provides the synergy for a quality member experience. The critical difference for Ever’man to stay competitive is to provide more quality organic and all-natural product options at a reasonable cost with customer education and satisfaction as a core value. I have been thoroughly involved in developing the second location on Nine Mile Road. This is an exciting time for Ever’man expansion as an educational and local product outlet for the environmentally aware consumer. I have an interest in seeing Ever’man utilize creative concepts to promote healthy lifestyles to the underprivileged community as well.

Mary Gutierrez would like to contribute to the Ever’man Board of Directors as community liaison, event coordinator and educator to Ever’man members.
