As an educator, she is engaging and inspiring. Her experience as an entrepreneur grounds her style in a personal approach and facilitates meaningful, rewarding relationships with emerging farmers and ranchers. She facilitated a gathering of regional peer organizations, helping us to build a foundation for a vision of collaboration across training programs that will support small farm viability in the Hudson Valley.”
