is a first year MEM interested in agriculture and food security. Before coming to F&ES, she spent 7 years working for non-profits and think tanks at the intersection of food access, agricultural development, and community engagement. Cortney’s appetite has guided her from her home state of Minnesota, to apprenticing on a family farm in New York, to catching red ants in the jungles of northeastern Thailand. She’s looking forward to serving as a Peer Career Advisor and encouraging her classmates to discover their future career paths!
