I currently work for the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition as the Grassroots Organizer for Michigan Voices for Good Food Policy. Michigan Voices collaborates with NSAC members and other Michigan food & farm allies to unite and elevate Michigan grassroots voices in support of policies that expand opportunities for rural and urban farmers to produce good food, sustain the environment, and contribute to healthy and vibrant communities.
I got my start in food systems work as a co-founder of the Giving Garden at my alma mater, Eastern Michigan University. During the same time, I became a founding member and co-coordinator of the Michigan Young Farmer Coalition. Recently I joined the Michigan Farmers Market Association Board of Directors!
