Program Manager of Food Systems Equity
I manage the Viviane Barnett Fellowship, a cohort-based fellowship program designed for aspiring, emerging, and experienced Black, Indigenous and people of color leaders in Oregon working across sectors to build equitable, climate-resilient food systems. My passion for food and land justice meet at the intersection of lived experience under food apartheid, a gazillion hospitality jobs, and storytelling. I’m a first generation Colombian American by way of Miami, Fla. Living with my cat, Salem (named after the Teenage Witch’s), in the Pacific Northwest, I can be found talking with my hands and reacting loudly with my eyebrows over the dinner table.
Ecotrust is a member of this collaborative where partners work together toward shared goals to catalyze the development of an equitable and resilient regional food economy.
