About Me

Hi, I’m Francesca! My work sits at the intersection of community engagement, racial and economic justice, environmental sustainability, and human geography. I seek to affect equitable, sustainable, systemic change grounded in community leadership, deep listening, and reflective learning. Food systems work in particular motivates me as a locus for change. I began my undergraduate career at New York University’s Gallatin School and graduated with a degree in Urban Studies from Brown University in 2019.

I am also a dancer and choreographer committed to centering individual experiences and interdisciplinary collaboration in my creative process.
