Sustainability Coordinator, Cabot Creamery Co-operative
Panel 5: Food Innovation
What is one of your proudest career achievements?
When working with the University of Vermont and the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, I was a member of a team of researchers who put together the nation’s first state level climate assessment. I managed the press release event where we introduced the final assessment and shared locally, regionally and nationally. We successfully created a model for future work around improved, detailed communication of climate trends and subsequent impacts on people, communities and natural habitats.
What part of Boston’s sustainability/social impact scene is your favorite?
Cabot is a certified B Corp and I am currently on the planning committee for the next B Corp Leadership Development Event to be held in New England. These events bring B Corps from the region together to learn and share ideas, experiences, frustrations and successes for a day. I’m working with Boston area B Corps and love to see the growing number of organizations joining the B Corp community from the Boston area.
What is one book that you’ve recently read and would recommend?
Eat, Sleep, Run is a book by long distance runner Scott Jurek. The book tells his life story of how he overcame certain challenges in his childhood and used them as fuel to become one of the world’s greatest long distance runners. He tells the reader a tale of true determination and I believe that, whether a runner or an athlete, one can relate that type of discipline to whatever passion they have in life.
