Olivia Fuller brings her love of storytelling and farms together in her role as American Farmland Trust's New York Program & Outreach Coordinator. She works closely with the New York team to communicate about AFT’s work protecting farmland, keeping farmers on the land, and promoting sound farming practices.
Olivia grew up in upstate New York on a 300-acre dairy farm where she gained a deep appreciation for the land and a farmer’s work ethic. She attended the University at Albany to study communications and found her way back to farming and food working for a food access nonprofit, Capital Roots. There she conducted outreach and coordinated a hunger relief program bringing fresh produce, often donated from local farms, to emergency food programs.
Upon graduation, Olivia worked for a marketing agency where she gained experience in digital communications and branding. In 2015, she joined AFT and has worked to develop creative communication strategies to advance AFT’s mission in New York.
