Kelly Smith, Director of Operations
Kelly Smith is originally from Missouri, but developed her love for all things food while traveling abroad. Working on farms throughout Ecuador she discovered the myriad ways that food can bring communities together. Pursuing a minor in public health, Kelly’s studies led her to explore the connection between the available food supply and the overall health of a community. She then spent two years working at a Youth Garden in Moab, Utah where she had the opportunity to utilize both the garden and kitchen to engage kids in growing and eating healthy foods. Kelly has now been a part of the Jackson community for over four years and is excited to work with Slow Food in the Tetons. Despite the sometimes challenging weather, she remains enthusiastic about growing and cooking local produce, and about sharing her love for plants and food with the people of Jackson.
