- 7300 Greenly Dr. Oakland CA
Guided by an interest in developing the intersection of community and environmental health, specifically as it relates to food, I hope to offer my own unique experiences as well as broaden my working knowledge in how we can expand alternatives to the current industrial food system. I am cooperatively-minded, detail-oriented, and thrive in a work environment where I must accomplish a variety of tasks. I have worked directly in many different aspects of the food system, from conducting research with coffee farmers in Ecuador, to being an urban farmer and lead member of a small food business in Chicago.
