Emma Liddle first came to Practical Farmers of Iowa in September 2020 through Green Iowa AmeriCorps and was hired as the membership coordinator in August 2021. She handles logistics for PFI’s major events, works with sponsors, volunteers and speakers and manages the process of welcoming new members to PFI. She also helps with front-of-office tasks and data organization.
Emma graduated from Grinnell College in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in biology and a concentration in environmental studies. In fall 2018, Emma studied abroad in the Australian rainforest, and this experience informed her work at Grinnell as a mentor for students interested in off-campus study. Emma wore many hats as an AmeriCorps Member, doing work with PFI’s communications, membership and research teams.
Emma is originally from Bloomington, Minnesota, and recently relocated to Ames. In her free time, she enjoys walking with an audiobook, taking on enormous craft projects, completing puzzles and shopping at thrift stores.
