Emily Soderberg is originally from Tucson, AZ, where she recently graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Sustainable Built Environments and a minor in Sustainable Plant Systems. During her time at the U of A she gained a tangible perspective of food waste through her work with UA Compost Cats, a student-run, commercial-scale compost operation. This work inspired her to dedicate her career to creating a sustainable food system for both the planet and its people, and couldn't be more excited to begin that journey with Food Recovery Network. In her spare time, Emily enjoys going to art museums, cooking, hiking, and learning about plants.

While in school Gaby spent a semester in Senegal, where she conducted research on ecotourism and helped implement a project to improve oyster farming methods among village women.
