I’m an agricultural consultant with broad experience in business and market planning for small and large producers, cooperative strategic planning, local food systems, value chain management, and specialty marketing strategies. I’ve directed many agriculture oriented non-profits and have skills in organizational development, strategic planning, and project management. I’m a retired Values Based Supply Chain Analyst at the University of California Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program. With USAID funding I have consulted for twelve projects in developing countries.

A thread that has run through all my work has been a commitment to sustainable agriculture and the continuing viability of producers. I believe that a healthy and sustainable farm community must contain small and large farms that implement and experiment with diverse cultural and marketing practices. My work to advance sustainable agriculture leverages my skills to make a positive impact on the global environment.
