background

I strive to improve the health & sustainability of urban and peri-urban food systems and have nearly a decade of experience working in food policy. At present, I work as a consultant while completing my graduate thesis; I work both locally in New England and abroad with a regional focus on Latin America. I recently finished my coursework for a dual masters program: an M.A. from the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy and an M.S. from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science Policy at Tufts University. I have considerable experience in urban agriculture and am building expertise at the intersection of food policy and climate change. I am a thorough and expedient researcher, exceptionally organized, and adept at applying systems thinking to craft strategic policy solutions.
