Macy Lee joined the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) as a development research intern in November 2021. As an intern she assists the development team with furthering FFAR’s mission and additional supporting activities such as fundraising and identifying prospect information relevant to food and agriculture.

Macy’s interest and passion for agriculture derives from living on a 5th generation family farm in southern Minnesota. Through a childhood of hands-on agriculture labor to research and academia, she has learned through firsthand experience the important role that agriculture plays in our everyday lives.

Outside of Macy’s work at FFAR, she is currently pursuing her bachelor’s degree in International Studies from American University. Her focus in environmental sustainability, global development and sustainability management has been honed by previous work with the National Farmers Union on their sustainable dairy team. As a senior at American University, she has also had the opportunity to work with female education initiatives, climate policy and limiting the spread of HIV within the Washington D.C. area. In Macy’s free time she likes to read, bake Midwest treats, garden and explore different Washington D.C. neighborhoods.
