Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    I grew up in Los Angeles, California.

  • 2.

    My grandparents were farmers and my dad spent his career working in produce, so I’ve always been passionate about finding ways to bring food to people in a local and sustainable way.

  • 3.

    I studied public relations, political science, and environmental science at the University of Southern California.

  • 4.

    While in college, I started interning with Grades of Green, an environmental nonprofit in Los Angeles that works with students to create action-driven campaigns for environmental change.

  • 5.

    Upon receiving my master’s degree in strategic public relations, I was hired on as the marketing and communications manager for Grades of Green.

  • 6.

    As the organization grew, I was promoted to the director of global programs and then co-executive director.

  • 7.

    After experiencing all of the growth and impact of Grades of Green, I eventually felt like it was time for me to get back into the idea-to-action phase of an organization, so I joined AeroFarms.

  • 8.

    I started with AeroFarms as the marketing communications manager and have since moved up to senior marketing manager, leading our internal and external communications.
