Kaitlin is a second year MBA with a keen interest in the opportunities that disruptions in agriculture, energy, and food systems present for improving peoples’ lives and alleviating global resource constraints.
Prior to the University of Michigan, Kaitlin managed international development projects in Liberia, Tanzania, Egypt, and elsewhere focused on strengthening market systems and building agribusiness capacity. She also led cross functional grant-writing teams to win new business for the organization and developed and rolled out the organization’s first set of SOPs for contract management. During her summer 2018 internship, Kaitlin created a strategic hops sourcing plan for AB InBev and supported agtech product design and testing through their accelerator program.
Kaitlin’s passion for food and agriculture began on her family farm in Nebraska and deepened during a three-month stint working on organic and conventional farms in New Zealand. Kaitlin holds a B.S. in Biology from Creighton University.
