Graduate Researcher

Courtney is a currently pursuing a Master's in Business Administration Degree. She works as a Research Assistant with the Food & Agribusiness Institute. Her main project at FAI is managing the "Real Cost of a Healthy Meal" study in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. This study aims to determine whether or not individuals residing in these counties can attain a healthy meal, by USDA guidelines, for the cost that CalFresh (Foodstamps) allots. Courtney has studied abroad in Kenya, as well as travelled with FAI's immersion team to Ghana this past summer. While abroad, she realized the immense need for food, inspiring her desire to attain a Masters of Business Administration/Masters of Public Health dual degree. With these degrees, she hopes to work for a nonprofit organization in the agricultural sector. In her spare time she enjoys reading, baking, and traveling.
