As Food 4 Farmers’ first Executive Director, Aly comes to our organization with more than 15 years of experience managing development projects, mainly in Latin America. Aly has extensive experience working in Mexico, Belize, Colombia, Honduras, Guatemala, Peru and Indonesia. She has spent most of her career working for government contractors, overseeing projects in Latin America financed by USAID, and focused on the environment, economic development, governance, and land rights issues. Aly’s interest in supporting communities began while studying at the University of Vermont, when she traveled to Cuba. At that moment, she knew she wanted to pursue a career working internationally.
Aly lived in Mexico for two years, and dreams of returning. Until then, as a seventh generation Vermonter, she’s thrilled to return home, be close to family, and watch her daughter enjoy Vermont as she did, developing the same love of nature, maple syrup, and creemees.
