I serve as Senior Director, Sustainability Initiatives at National Milk Producers Federation, where I lead the FARM Environmental Stewardship and FARM Workforce Development program areas. I focus on developing tools and resources to help U.S. dairy farms improve their environmental and labor outcomes, which in turn provides important supply chain assurances. I serve on the Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) Board of Directors and am also a member of the International Dairy Federation (IDF) Standing Committee on the Environment. Before joining NMPF, I worked as a consultant for the FARM program and for a variety of clients in the food and ag sector. I developed sustainability programs/reports, procurement policies and research studies for dairy cooperatives, environmental NGOs, and protein processors. My experience spans multiple industries and disciplines, giving me a broad perspective on sustainability – including consulting for pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies; working at an international environmental conservation non-profit; and, serving as an internal management consultant for a leading prosecutor’s office. I hold a Master of Science in Agriculture, Food and Environment from Tufts University and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Yale University.
