 Title Food Systems Advisor
 Location UCCE Marin County
 Time with ANR 2 months
 Typical Day As the North Bay Food Systems Advisor, my job is to connect local producers with local consumers—especially those who are not served by the conventional food system. In this new position, I am excited to find innovative ways to support the viability and sustainability of local agriculture and enhance access to healthy food for our communities.

 Most Memorable Moment In my two months with UCCE, I've been lucky to have had the opportunity to explore our local agricultural bounty. From touring urban gardens in the SF Bay Area, to exploring the beautiful Marin headlands on a 4-wheeler, to tasting delicious, locally made products, every day has included something memorable!

 What I love Most About Working for ANR What I love most about my job are the kind, welcoming, and smart folks across the UC ANR network.

 My Story I am happy to be working for UC ANR after obtaining master's degrees from UC Davis in Public Health and Community Development and working for small nonprofits in the Sacramento region.

Here's to another 100 years of science and service!
