Kate has worked at the Glynwood Center for Food and Farming since spring 2019. As Program Manager, Kate supports Glynwood's Regional Food Programs and Farmer Training Programs, including Glynwood's farm apprenticeship, the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition, and the Food Sovereignty Fund. In helping build and maintain Glynwood's networks of farmers, chefs, cider makers, and other food system actors, Kate works with the aim of establishing a more cohesive, equitable and robust Hudson Valley.
Before coming to Glynwood, Kate worked as an environmental science educator in New York City through the organization Christodora. She additionally did freelance research for the Open Space Institute and for the Overbrook Foundation on issues surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion in environmental programming and sustainability in the cattle industry.
Kate graduated from Yale in 2018 with a degree in Environmental Studies. Her work for the Yale Sustainable Food Program gave her experience in event planning, organic farming, food justice, and outdoor education. Originally from Iowa, Kate sees sustainable agriculture as an imperative initiative to protect the environment and local farming communities. When she's not thinking about food and farming systems, Kate enjoys trail running, playing chamber music, and cooking.
