About me. I am from St. Paul, and received a degree in horticultural science from the University of Michigan. During my studies I interned on an organic farm in Michigan, it was there I realized my passion for farming and sustainable agriculture. I also enjoy wine making, printmaking, and bike rides.
About my service. I serve as a living green-local foods member at Gale Woods Farm in Minnetrista. My main project is coordinating the pilot year of a farm-to-school effort between the farm and the Westonka school district. Throughout the year I hope to raise community awareness as well as increasing the amount of local produce served in the schools, number of farms involved, and number of student visits to the farm.

Why I serve. My love for people and plants (especially veggies). Through my service I have been able to bring healthier foods to children, support local farmers, and build community.
My favorite place to visit in Minnesota. Anywhere along the Mississippi River!
