I am excited to be a part of the FLESNY team as the Garden Educator! My position gives me the opportunity to teach in school and community gardens across Monroe County and Wayne County. I previously served as an AmeriCorps member working with students in their school gardens in Washington, DC, and it's great to bring my experience back to my home city! My goal is to facilitate people connecting to their environment and to empower them to be active in their own health. I designed my major, Health Advocacy, at SUNY Buffalo State to combine my passions for food and people, and I completed minors in Spanish and Urban Civic Education as well. I enjoy music, reading, anything involving food, and anything outside.
