I am currently a graduate student at Indiana University - Bloomington, working toward my Doctorate in the Dept. of Geography with a concentration in human geography. My goal is to find new means of analysis for community-based agriculture projects. I have experience teaching core geography classes, including leading the lab sections of G107, Physical Systems of the Environment and being the lead instructor on three different courses: G110, Human Geography; G369, Geography of Food; and G357, Community Orchards & Community Gardens (a class of my own creation). While completing my studies, I am also working as a fundraising assistant for Community Kitchen of Monroe County, where I spend my time writing grant proposals.
