I have worked out of our Nevada, Iowa, office since 2016. My background is in federal agricultural policy, with an emphasis on working lands conservation. During my time at the Center, I have met with dozens of congressional offices; written many blogs, op-eds, and white papers; and coordinated more projects and grants than I can count. But, the best part of my job has and always will be getting to know the people who care about the Center’s mission.
I moved to Iowa in 2014 to pursue my master’s degree in sociology and sustainable agriculture at Iowa State University, and in my spare time, I like to grow vegetables and native prairie plants.
