Josie Talbert

Josie graduated from The University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a B.S. in Geography, a concentration in Environmental Science and a minor in Environmental Studies. Josie values sustainability across all industries, but is specifically passionate about sustainability in food and agriculture due to the large potential for positively impacting both people and planet. This passion led Josie to accept a position with the IPM Institute on the Sustainable Food Group (SFG) team. With SFG, Josie has been able to help companies create sustainability goals around packaging and food waste; co-author a white paper on regenerative agriculture; manage custom supply chain programs for large retailers; analyze pesticide risk and agricultural risk in priority crops; launch the Sustainability Standard Certification program; and more. Josie loves backpacking and camping out West and beyond with her family and friends.
