Author: Noelle Wyman

In 2011, Noelle Wyman was a rising second year MEM in the Economics and Policy track with a focus on urban environmental issues and food policy. Noelle received her Bachelor of Arts from Boston College in 2009 with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Environmental Studies. While in college, Noelle interned for various organizations, including Clean Water Action Boston, and wrote a sustainability plan for existing dormitories on the Boston College campus. After college, Noelle returned to her home state to work as an AmeriCorps volunteer with Missouri Coalition for the Environment (MCE). Upon moving to Durham, Noelle enjoyed visiting the local farmers' market, which led to a budding interest in local food. Noelle's experience at the Nicholas School has allowed her to explore her newfound passion for food and farming. She is an officer with Farmhand and you can also find her working a stand Saturday mornings at the Durham Farmers' Market. Noelle hopes that her experience on the Duke Campus Farm will provide crucial insight into the value of local, sustainable food and, eventually, to translate that knowledge into policy action.
