Who We Are


Christine Burns-Fazzi

Raised on the coast of NC, Chris spent her business career working in the area of benefits and insurance. She and her business partner Rich Brock developed a national business and decided to “pay it forward” by developing a Foundation dedicated to helping developing communities by educating girls and women. The BFB Foundation started in 2011 which now supports over 500 wo men and girls in Guatemala with their educational goals.

Janet K Shaw

Jan grew up on a farm in Colorado where the family grew all their own food from vegetables to beef and chickens. “Farm to Table” was an everyday experience in her youth. She spent 30+ years in finance and accounting with a Coca-Cola bottler. A partner with her husband Mike in his construction and landscaping business, allowed her to continue her love of growing flowers and maintaining gardens.

Chris and Jan’s friendship spans many years. They both strongly believe in family, community and each other. They decided to join forces to develop “Growing for Good” to help fund the BFB Foundation and its educational goals and to expand the agricultural community in Alleghany County.
