About ColleenMcCall

As reformed lawyer and co-founder of We Olive Ventura, Colleen has found her calling in writing. A native Californian, she has lived in many parts of the state but says Ventura County represents home. She lives in Oxnard with her daughters and her dog, Tobi Tobey and cat Velvet. No longer a retailer, Colleen assists clients with grant writing, content creation and retail business solutions. On these pages she shares her perspective – sometimes factual, sometimes humorous – on issues close to the heart of VC – mostly edible.
