Colorado Department of Agriculture

I joined Colorado Department of Agriculture in Oct of 2021 to launch and manage the Colorado Agricultural Future Loan Program (CAFLP). CAFLP is focused on making funds available to beginning and underserved farmers, ranchers, and food processors. Prior to working at the CDA, I operated the Boulder County Farmers Markets from 2013 to 2021, working with 125+ farmers and ranchers across Colorado during that time. My community activity includes being a board member of the Slow Money Institute and Kitchen Cabinet member of SOIL Boulder (community funded 0% loans to local growers), and a former member of Colorado Food Systems Advisory Council, the Colorado State Fair Board, and the Farmers Market Coalition.
