Executive Director for the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (MISA).
Since 2002 I have served as the Director for the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (MISA). MISA is a joint venture between CFANS, University of Minnesota Extension, and four community-based non-profit organizations. MISA's purpose is to bring together the interests of the agricultural community to develop and promote the long-term viability of agricultural systems. My responsibilities include oversight and program support for the activities of MISA as determined by a 15 member Board of Directors. My research work is focused on sustainable food systems, and identifying ways of increasing diverse team participation in research, education, and outreach programs. I am on the graduate faculty of the Applied Plant Sciences program, the Conservation Biology program, and the MacArthur Program/Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change.
