The Food Systems Graduate Program at UVM engages students in coursework and research related to agriculture and food, from farm to plate. Using a systems thinking approach, the program stresses the complexity, interdependence and transdisciplinarity of food systems. Opportunities to strengthen Vermont's food system include engaging in fieldwork and hands-on learning experiences, conducting mixed-method, transdisciplinary research projects, and collaborating with community partners to help address local food system problems.

Show Bio
Born and raised in Randolph, Vermont, I attended Bates College in Lewiston, ME ('11), earning a bachelor's degree in psychology/neuroscience and completing a pre-medical curriculum. After graduation I moved back to Vermont and worked at newly-established Richmond Family Medicine, where I gained valuable exposure to the practice of clinical medicine. Yet, instead of pursuing medical school, my longstanding passion for public health, nutrition and food led me to explore relevant graduate programs at the University of Vermont, and in the fall of 2012 I became part of the inaugural class of the Food Systems Graduate Program. I am currently entering my second and final year of the program, taking courses across several disciplines, completing a thesis research project, and working as both a teaching assistant and research assistant.
