Why are you interested in serving on the Prairie Food Board of Directors?
This is a very exciting time for PFC. I have been a member since moving to Elmhurst in 2015. I am in awe of the commitment that the PFC community has made to bring this vision to reality and I believe it is time for me to get more involved. I am interested in joining the board to really help with the transition from a working board to an oversight board and joining the board when it is still a working board will help me to get a sense of where I can best help. I serve or have served on a couple boards for non-profits that were more in the oversight capacity. This transition excites me. I am very committed to the PFC mission and I also believe that I can be of help as it relates to finances and audit.

What are your personal goals for Prairie Food Co-op?
