Originally from Louisville, KY, Ann graduated from the University of Kentucky in December 2009 with a BA in Human Geography and minors in Anthropology and International Studies. After an internship in DC with the Education Division at National Geographic last spring, she returned to Lexington, KY to work her second season on the University of Kentucky's organic CSA farm. Ann's experience with sustainability comes from many angles. While at UK she was a bicycle mechanic at the on-campus bicycle shop, a resident advisor in the sustainability themed residence hall, coordinated a sustainability lecture series featuring Vandana Shiva, and was on the planning committee for UK's month-long celebration of sustainability: Earthdays in the Bluegrass. Her personal interests include bicycles and mass transit, food justice and sustainable food systems, learning Spanish, yoga, ultimate frisbee, and urban planning. Ann is keen to take advantage of what Pittsburgh provides regarding these interests and is looking forward to acquainting herself with a new city.
