Program Coordinator, Lund Fellows Program for Regenerative Agriculture, Department of Global Development
Carrie is the program coordinator for the Lund Fellows Program for Regenerative Agriculture. This program aims to provide students from across the university an opportunity to explore natural ecosystems and learn about ecological and social approaches to agricultural systems. In addition, it fosters relationships been Cornell University and local farms and provides the farms financial assistantship for hosting a summer intern.
Carrie has been a life-long lover of the outdoors, following her undergraduate years at Kenyon College, she worked for the national parks managing the Botanical Garden on the Dutch island of Sint Eustatius in the Caribbean. This was followed by two years working for the School For Field Studies Center for Marine Resource Management in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Wanderlust still alive and well, Carrie landed a job in Western Australia working on a Social Impact Assessment of a large-scale liquefied natural gas project. With a passion for adventure, experiential learning, and student mentorship Carrie is excited for her role assisting students with summer internships and pre and post-internship reflection courses.
Originally from Denver, Colorado Carrie has called Ithaca home for the last 12 years. She holds a Master’s in Public Health from the Colorado School of Public Health and a Master’s of Science in Natural Resource Management from Cornell. When not busy with work she is exploring hiking trails, taking care of her kids, making art, and starting to explore graphic design and data visualization.
