Our People

Meet the Good Earth Family.

Michael Going 

Founder & CEO
Favourite drink: Americano with a splash of cold water to bring the temperature down. French press, black for feature coffees.

Nan Eskenazi 

Favourite drink: Flat White made with whole milk, pure and simple.

Gerry Docherty

President & COO
Favourite drink: Drip coffee in the morning…the Good Earth Feature Coffee because I can taste the passion that went into getting  to that final cup. Black but not filled to the top because I will spill a full cup 100% of the time!

Cristy Laing

Director of Training
Favourite drink: Americano, black for the rich intense flavour.  But for a treat a latte with 1 sugar in the raw not stirred, just sitting on top to enjoy that last sweet sip!

JV Finlayson

Regional Manager 
Favourite drink: Dark Roast French Press in the morning and Americano’s on the go

Ralph Bell

Senior Accountant
Favourite drink: Latin American Estate Blend 

Rhonda Hoover

Accounting Coordinator
Favourite drink: Depending on the day, I’m always mixing it up!  It could be an Earl Grey Latte,Iced Coconut Chai, or simply our Medium Roast Latin American Estate Blend.  Black… so I can enjoy the rich smooth flavor!

Jody Milhousen

Office Manager
Favourite drink: Light Roast drip Coffee with a little cream and sugar – sweet and simple.

Erin Lund

Commissary Manager
Favourite drink: Feature Coffee, black.  As a treat I am addicted to the Banana Latte Frappe!

Kari Ginakos

Corporate Chef
Favourite drink: I like the medium roast black usually half a cup at a time so it stays nice and hot but for a treat I'll go for a whole milk vanilla latte or rooibos vanilla latte with almond milk.

Donovan Vienneau

Regional Manager
Favourite drink: I have a genuine love affair with coffee... From medium roast to high-test. All my coffees I prefer black to taste all the flavour profiles. On occasion I do like to treat myself to a Roobios tea over ice with a single shot of strawberry!


Sherry McNeil

Senior Development Consultant
Favourite drink: Every morning starts with light roast French Press, afternoons are spent savouring a latte, and in the evenings after yoga a African Nectar or Jasmine tea to extend the Zen.
