Partnership & Development Manager
As the Partnership and Development Manager, Haley oversees OFRF’s individual, corporate, and foundation fundraising as well as strategic partnerships. She believes that building strong collaborative relationships across the food system will better support sustainable farmers, and help us mitigate and adapt to climate change. Prior to her current role, she helped manage OFRF’s research and education program, including OFRF’s grant program and grower education projects.
Over the past decade, Haley has sought to build a more equitable and sustainable food system, all starting as a child growing up in San Francisco. Prior to OFRF, she oversaw operations and staff for Pineapple Collaborative, a community for womxn who love food, conducted large-scale food access program evaluations, farmed organic land, handled sourcing and logistics for a farm share, and more. She has a Master’s in Food Studies from New York University, where she focused on sustainable food systems and the organic supply chain, publishing two papers on the ways certified organic handlers support organic producers. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Spanish from Wesleyan University, and a graduate certificate in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems from Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition.
When she isn’t working, you can usually find Haley traipsing around local farms, exploring new hikes, eating dumplings, and cooking with lots of vegetables.
