We are an ambitious bunch. Scientists and storytellers, inventors and analysts, technologists, collaborators, pathfinders, and big thinkers. We make maps and software apps, manage forests and investment funds, connect local farmers and fishermen with local eaters. And we convene communities around ideas that matter.

Program Manager of Food Systems Equity
In my role at Ecotrust, I serve as a community connector and educator. It has been a gift to be able to explore my passions for regenerative agriculture, community development, and social justice for over 20 years. Growing up in California as a first-generation Black Latina provided a foundation of unconvention and innovation that catalyzes and informs my work in the world. In my quiet moments, I find joy in creating mix-media art, cultivating beautiful spaces, and long dinners in good company.

Shauna Noah O’Connor

Believes that events create community, and communities change the world. Equity not equality. Every occasion is an occasion for champagne.

Wedding & Venue Coordinator
Amateur cheese maker and cookie connoisseur. The youngest of three children born of Italian and Irish descent from the South Side of Chicago. I was brought into this existence for one divine purpose: to attend and plan parties. Cooking and sharing food is my love language, and I think there is no better way to celebrate family and community than with a good meal. Please show me every picture you’ve ever taken of your pet(s).
