It’s been said that you should chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night. That certainly applies to Lisa Jenkins. Once she sets her mind to something, she obsesses over it until she gets it right. That’s how her desire to make natural soap as a hobby erupted into a full-fledged business…that’s gone way beyond soap.
