When she is not in a spreadsheet crunching numbers you can find Idara cooking or playing with her children ages 5-18.  She loves animals and nature and has had almost every pet you can imagine.  She most recently took up gardening. She brags that last year her tomatoes touched the awaning of her roof.  Fun fact this business is named after Idara and her children who's names all begin withthe letter Z. Now that we are all sheltering in place, dont be surprised if you hear a squeky kindergartner in the background as you talk to her.
