Academic Qualifications

Master of Library and Information Science
University of Washington

I am an information manager and education activist interested in ethical supply chains, access issues, empowering healthy communities, and technology. My undergraduate years were spent studying math and ancient agricultural practices and my graduate studies were spent learning how to foster, mine, and teach the use of interdisciplinary research resources. Growing up moving all over the world, however, has lead me to become passionately focused on how people are impacted by our current energy and food systems both locally and globally.

I am also interested in all levels of education, information management and community development. I am currently finishing a degree in mathematics with a teaching license and delving into Salesforce certification just to keep my brain nimble and my credentials relevant.
