Originally from New York, Annie recently graduated from Bates College in Lewiston, ME, with a degree in Environmental Studies. Throughout her time in Maine, her interest in the environment took a specific turn toward food justice and sustainability. The summer before her senior year she interned on a grow-to-give farm in Maine. During her senior year, she wrote her thesis on the success of the Lewiston Farmers Market as a center for food justice. She is excited to join Farm Fresh RI as the Food Access and Community Education AmeriCorps Member. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, and exploring new coffee shops.
