I am interested in urban agriculture as it relates to economic opportunities.
I started a youth employment program to create opportunities for high schoolers to develop their own CSA farms.
I have also started my own farm, taking on a vacant lot in the summer of 2015.
I am in the Urban Studies Masters Program and a MIED fellow in UWM's Center for Economic Opportunity.
