Angela is a strategist and designer working for a fairer food system. An Iowa native and recent repatriate, she lived in Asia, Europe, and Africa before finding her home in the Hudson Valley. She advises independently and served as the CEO of GKI, a social enterprise advancing human-centered design and systems thinking, and a Partner and Director of Agriculture & Food Security at Dalberg, a global strategy firm. In addition to her advisory work, Angela is pursuing her PhD and lecturing at the University of Cape Town. She is a contributing author to two books on African development. Angela is happiest collaborating with inclusive decision-makers to address complex systems challenges and facilitating strategic conversations about food, social innovation, and sustainable market development. She’s also quite happy rolling out her yoga mat, taking a hike, or puttering around her old farmhouse in Hudson.
