Organics Program Manager
Zero Waste Sonoma
As the Organics Program Manager for the Joint Powers Authority (JPA), Zero Waste Sonoma, I lead the countywide implementation of state law Short-lived Climate Pollutants (SB 1383), am involved in the County's efforts to permit and site a new composting facility, organize annual compost giveaway events, and manage several grants related to carbon sequestration and food recovery, among other responsibilities.

Before I joined the compost industry, I earned a BS in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior from the University of Minnesota. My senior research project involved studying the mating behaviors of crickets. I spent a few years working for the USDA studying how environmental variability could affect plant absorption of nitrogen and compared techniques to limit fertilizer runoff.
