I am a Senior Manager for Global Impact Partnerships at Cargill, a global agribusiness company whose purpose is to nourish the world in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way. I build relationships and lead partnerships with global NGOs and other stakeholders in support of Cargill’s corporate responsibility and sustainability priorities and goals, on topics including food security and farmer livelihoods. I also advise on and advance the company’s community-based food security and nutrition efforts, including co-investment initiatives such as the TRANSFORM project with USAID. I began my career in nonprofit organizations advocating for healthy food access, and later shifted to food business, working first at a global PR firm with food and agriculture clients and then at the fresh fruit and vegetable trade association before joining Cargill. I hold an MPH from Tufts University and an MS degree in Food Policy and Applied Nutrition from the Friedman School.
