Meet The Team

Micaela O’Mara

Communications, Programs & Outreach Coordinator

I am a recent graduate from the University of Vermont where I studied Community and International Development and minored in Nutrition and Food Sciences. I have always been extremely passionate about food – whether that be eating, cooking, learning about food insecurity in my community, or volunteering at local food banks. I believe that everyone should have equal access to affordable, nutrient dense, and healthy food options. I love that food brings people together and that it is an incredible way to explore other cultures. My goal with Slow Food Denver is to make a lasting impact on my community and to encourage more sustainable, local and healthy food consumption.  

I’m originally from upstate New York, making the transition to Denver after graduating from college. In my free time I love to explore everything that Colorado has to offer! My favorite activities are snowboarding, skiing, hiking, and camping in the mountains. Locally, I love shopping at farmers markets, thrift stores, and coaching lacrosse.
