Operations Manager, Green City Market
Growing up in the South, where the culture is centered on the home, and more specifically, the kitchen, Kathleen developed a strong passion for food from a young age. Kathleen’s passion for the local food movement has stemmed from traveling, experience on family farms and the desire to create community through food. As Operations Manager, Kathleen enjoys finding ways to tap into existing organizations to grow the GCM community. After graduating from College of Charleston in 2012, Kathleen pursued a sports marketing internship in Los Angeles, CA. She relocated to Chicago where she worked in a trade association and most recently for Gallup supporting their Midwest Client Development team. Kathleen became involved with Green City Market as a member of the volunteer team in 2012, which became the perfect outlet for her to channel her passion for local food. In June of 2015, Kathleen took the leap from the corporate world and joined the full time staff with Green City Market.
When she’s not working with GCM, Kathleen enjoys running, yoga, traveling, and eating her way through Chicago!
