Our dedicated Hub staff, more bios coming soon!
Hailing from the arenas of pig championships in Wayne County, Ohio, Cullen didn’t imagine a return to northeast Ohio agriculture as a young adult. Though, her serpentine path through some of the world’s biggest cities, love of math and deep instinct of knowing we can do better led her back to her native lands. She couldn’t be happier to be working with the growers that fuel our soil and our bodies. Outside of lifting bushel after bushel of produce, you’ll find Cullen running and cycling, often regaling her comrades of stories on the farm(s).
Cullen has a degree in Industrial Systems Engineering from The Ohio State University and an MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University.
