I am the Farm and Food Attorney at Legal Aid of Nebraska. I am a native of Lincoln and recently spent four years in Moscow, Idaho, where I received my J.D. and M.S. focusing on Water Resources. My master’s thesis focused on water, land use, and agricultural policies and practices concerning the use of the River Nile in Egypt. Upon my return to Nebraska, I started working at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the Agronomy and Horticulture Department. I helped instruct a course on international land grabs with Dr. Charles Francis. In both of these positions I hope to support local farmers and food systems. Through my work with Legal Aid of Nebraska I help beginning farmers obtain information and support them as they try to start farming operations. I also focus on water law, urban agriculture, and local foods. I hope to gain new ideas and information from joining this network.
