As a graduate student and active community member, I use practical and analytical to address local food system issues and sustainability. This materializes through volunteerism at OSU and other local nonprofits, by conducting program evaluations and devising new solutions to these complex issues, and having knowledge of and an interest to build community food security. I am equipped to work with colleagues at OSU and beyond as a positive change agent and together, we can leverage our resources "to improve global life quality by inspiring sustainable multidisciplinary food solutions".
