Aly Reynolds joins CFAC as an Americorps VISTA, serving in a role that focuses on marketing, outreach, and communications. Her work centers on connecting community members to the mission of CFAC. Aly received her Bachelor’s in Strategic Communication and International Development from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Throughout her studies, Aly grew a passion for community food access. Her International Development program led her to study for a semester in Honduras, where she took part in a community garden program. Witnessing communities taking charge of their own food system caused a shift—Aly knew then she wanted to pursue a career in sustainable food systems. Upon her return, Aly worked on an urban farm and interned in various communication roles. She hopes to use her voice alongside those advocating for better food systems, something CFAC specializes in. Aly looks forward to learning all about Montana food systems with CFAC, and she is excited to be a part of the team.
