  • Food Systems Specialist, Swette Center for Sustainable Food Systems


Jane is a recent graduate of Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Sustainable Food Systems and a minor in Nutrition and Healthy Living. She was one of the first three students to receive this degree from ASU. Jane held a student worker position at the Swette Center and transitioned into a full time role as a Food Systems Specialist after she graduated in 2022. Her expertise stems both from her studies in food systems and her work experience on an organic farm in Nebraska. In her new position, Jane will support the Center's research work in organic agriculture and true cost accounting of food production. She will also serve as a resource for students enrolled in the Center's three educational programs. Jane's leadership in organic agriculture and soil health has been recently recognized through her selection as a board member for the Grain Place Foundation.
