"I’m originally from St. Louis, but I’ve lived all over the Midwest. I’ve now called myself an Iowan for four years and counting. I have degrees in sustainable agriculture and community and regional planning from Iowa State, and I enjoy spending time outside, gardening in any space I can find, baking, and traveling. I’m excited to be on board and can’t want to meet you all soon at events, conferences, and more!"
