Johanna brings a background of food policy and organic agriculture to coordinating NOFA-VT's local food access programs. Originally from southeast Pennsylvania, Johanna grew her love for all things food in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and now Vermont. From working on small, organic diversified vegetable farms to supporting local producers through community-based non-profits, Johanna developed a passion for thinking radically and working collaboratively to build a just, equitable food system. She pursued a Master's in Food and Agriculture Law and Policy at the Vermont Law School to learn about the policies that shape our food system and is excited to work towards greater food access and sovereignty in Vermont and beyond. Johanna spends her free time baking and consuming pastries, gardening, and trying to burn off her dog Reya's inexhaustible energy.
