Roles at NAAEE
Grace joined the NAAEE team in September 2021 and works as an Event and Executive Coordinator. She was raised in western Massachusetts where she developed a deep appreciation and love for the surrounding environment. Grace began her journey in Washington, DC by attending American University, where she earned both her BA and MPA in 5 years. She studied a combination of environmental studies, public health, public administration, and nonprofit management. She comes to NAAEE with a background in programming for youth development, education, and in-person and online farmers markets.
When COVID hit her hometown, Grace ran a virtual farmers market with Roots Rising where she managed an entire e-commerce platform to ensure food security and farmer stability during the pandemic. She has also worked as an educator for youth development programming, as a market manager of many in-person farmers' markets, and on many student and operational programs at her alma mater revolving around waste management. Grace is passionate about advancing sustainable food systems and fostering accessible environmental education spaces. In her free time, Grace likes to garden, host friends, cook, and explore her local farmers' markets.
