Clarisse Owens, Mobile Market Manager, is a native Michigander who loves all things food. While studying Environmental and Organizational Studies at the University of Michigan, she spent her free time tutoring high school and middle school students in southeast Michigan communities. Before joining FDE's team as the Mobile Market Manager, she was growing fruits and vegetables at an organic farm in Whitmore Lake, MI, and had previously worked on a biodynamic farm learning how to produce food in a sustainable and resource conscious way.
Being new to the area, she's really looking forward to exploring more of the natural beauty and energy around food systems that southeastern North Carolina has to offer. She's open to any suggestions on good places to grab a coffee, read a book, or go for a run.
