President and owner H. Jaclyn Ishimaru-Gachina states “For the past 15 months I’ve had to come out of my comfort zone and make a conscious decision that this is right for the company and this is what I need to do to step up. John was just a natural at this kind of stuff. He thrived on it, loved having his picture taken, loved being interviewed… I have always been a background person. But I know what I need to do to keep this company viable and to continue John’s legacy, and so I make myself do these things. Continuing that legacy means one day passing the business to her sons. Michael, 25, is currently an account manager with the company, and Dominic, 22, is a horticulture student at Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo. Though the last year has been difficult professionally and emotionally for Ishimaru-Gachina, she says that the tasks ahead of her have not been impossible, thanks to her team. I’ve learned that with the support of my team, who I think are the best in the business, I can do this,” Ishimaru-Gachina says, “and they believe I can do it, too.”
