Vice President of Finance

Rachelle Sy

Rachelle Sy was raised on the lost cattle grazing ranchos de Santa Ana – San Juan Cajon, Canon, and Santiago – by a French Tunisian father of Spanish descent and a mother with roots in the citrus groves of California. Rachelle arrived in San Francisco in 2000 to study business management and modern religions. She then built and grew a successful accounting practice specializing in international business, food and beverage management, sustainable practices, and educational organizations. While learning the business of craft brewing, in 2006 she met Bill Reed at a restaurant on Haight Street, and joined Estancia soon thereafter, eager to be a part of a sensible and delicious solution for a healthy food system.

Alexis Tejeda

Alexis Tejeda grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont, where she spent her childhood skiing and enjoying the outdoors. She graduated from American University in Washington, D.C., where she studied journalism and political science. She interned on Capitol Hill with then-Congressman Bernie Sanders, and even wrote a speech for him that was read on the House floor.

After graduating, Alexis found her real passion in the food industry. She moved to San Francisco in 2007, and promptly fell in love with the Bay area. Alexis worked in a Michelin Star restaurant, all the while immersing herself in the local, healthy, and sustainably farmed and raised food movement. She is a passionate advocate for healthy living, which made Pasture One a perfect fit.

When she is not at work, Alexis enjoys raising backyard chickens, bicycling and discovering local organics with her husband and two young sons.
