My Work

I am an Adjunct Lecturer in the Food Studies Program at University of Southern Maine, Program Coordinator at The Cornucopia Project, and Doctoral Candidate in Environmental Studies at Antioch University New England. The working title of my dissertation is Cultivating Connections: A Critical Autoethnography of Gardens, Higher Education, and Social Identity in Community Food Systems

My work includes research, education, and leadership. My practices include gardening and farming in shared spaces, writing, and engaging community members to build local food resilience. I began growing food and learning about environmental and social aspects of food systems during the climate and economic crises of 2009. I'm committed to co-creating healthy, equitable, thriving, educated, and inspired communities that come together around food.  

I welcome you to connect and share your ideas for collaboration.
