About me

 Where to begin?  My name is Kira and I just moved to NYC to attend Teacher’s College-Columbia Uni  working towards my MS in Nutrition and Public Health.  Before that I’ve been all  over, I was in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost five years working in and around  the local farmers markets which is really what spurred me to come to New York.  But my  interest and close relationship with food started when I was a little girl in Northwest  Ohio shucking corn and eating honey comb from our hives.  Into my teens and  adulthood  I lived in rural south Georgia surrounded by cattle, cotton, and pecans.  I also lived and worked abroad  in Greece and Ecuador on farms studying aspects of agriculture, sustainability and biodiversity.  So now, full circle, I’ve nurtured a love and interest in local food systems and I’m here to find my footing in the food movement and share what I know!

And now I have made a little digital “picture taste” of my life. If you’re in this video and don’t want to be please tell me and I’ll take you out!  Enjoy…….

    Hey Kira!

    Nice blog, Thanks for posting about it on the ASFS list! Question, what did you get your undergrad degree in?

    • kiracohenmilo October 20, 2011 at 3:03 am #

      Thanks Chels!

      I studied Biological Science and Horticulture at the University of Georgia. And I choose to focus very heavily on agricultural production systems, so maybe it’s not quite the direction route to nutrition but here I am!
