Title: Resource Coordinator

As Resource Coordinator for the Non-GMO Project, Linda supports the Standards & Verification team by researching and monitoring GMO developments and trends, including synthetic biology. She first became interested in GMOs about 15 years ago when she had the opportunity to meet Dr. Vanaja Ramprasad, Founding Trustee of India’s GREEN Foundation, and discuss her work to foster and preserve biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, and the ability of small-scale farmers to achieve and maintain economic independence. Linda brings to the Project over 25 years’ experience in the environmental consulting field and is happy to have the opportunity to merge her environmental knowledge with her personal goals to support local, organic and non-GMO food production.
