Born outside Ann Arbor, Mich., Anne earned a B.A. in economics at Kalamazoo College while conducting research on the economics of natural resource valuation. While pursuing her Master of Science in Agricultural, Food and Resource Economics at Michigan State University, she studied the commercial feasibility of growing environmentally sustainable crops. At EWG, she explores agriculture’s impact on the environment and how we can change government policies to reduce agriculture pollution. After recently moving from Iowa to Minnesota with EWG, Anne likes to hike in the Twin Cities’ regional parks and kayak Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes. As a fervent animal lover, she enjoys exploring nearby dog parks with her Vizsla.
