The natural world has always held the key to Ali's passions, drive and imagination. Through the combination of her academic pursuits and personal life experience, she began investing her time and energy into learning about food systems and using business a force for good. This interest guided her down a path that eventually led to the Food Forest Cooperative!
Most recently, Ali graduated from Arizona State University with a Master’s degree in Sustainability Solutions. In the context of the FFC, her role involves a blend of supporting the business and administration side of the business while also utilizing her sustainability knowledge to support the integration of sustainable practices into the core of the coop’s business philosophy.
