Before joining the Island Institute, she worked in organic agriculture, as the head seed grower for a biodynamic seed company in upstate New York. She moved to Maine in the fall of 2017 to be closer to family and friends and reconnect with her roots.

A lover of raw oysters, she couldn’t be more psyched to live on the coast of Maine!
