Originally from Texas, Elizabeth became fascinated with sustainable agriculture while traveling in the Amazonas region of Brazil. She returned home and earned a Master’s in Agriculture and Environmental Sciences from Tarleton State University. She then spent a year at the ECHO Global Farm and Seedbank in Florida where she learned tropical agriculture and community development practices. From there she worked in ECHO’s Thailand office to coordinate and promote their 2019 regional conference, interacting with farmers across SE Asia. She enjoys supporting organic operations as they impact ecosystems and businesses for the better. Outside of work, she loves to cook and go on adventures with her husband.
