As one of the more recent XE recruits, Ariel is excited to be joining this immersive and creative community as Administrative Aide. Prior to this, she worked in food and agriculture, both with a Brooklyn-based farm share and a farm certification non-profit. Ariel first got a taste of community-supported agriculture upstate, while completing a BA in Environmental Studies at Vassar College, where she also ran the student garden. Produce aside, Ariel's life includes an interest in arts spaces, periodic foster cats, a preference for bike commutes, and, predictably, as many plants as possible. She's looking forward to embarking on an MA in Food Studies at Steinhardt this fall.
Please reach out to Ariel or stop by her office at any point during the week -- she's happy to try and help with questions relating to your courses, the coming semester, or what to make for dinner.
