We have a whole new crop of staff and interns joining the Nourishing the Planet team this spring. Today, meet Holly Tassi.
Holly graduated from Syracuse University in 2010 where she studied Supply Chain Management and Public Relations. Her senior thesis was the creation of a social business model that established a high value commodity supply chain for indigenous crops in Sub-Saharan Africa. This sparked her interested in international agricultural development and exploring the innovative ways small-holder farmers are being connected to international markets as a key to fighting global poverty.
Holly is currently working full-time in the beverage industry in a supply chain rotational program, but hopes to gain valuable experience that will lead her back to her social business model. She is excited to be working with Nourishing the Planet and is especially interested in seeing how large corporations are changing their mindset in terms of sustainability and social responsibility. In her spare time she enjoys traveling, sports, visiting friends and new adventures.
