Food Story

Plumlee first became interested in nutrition as a Peace Corps health volunteer in Guatemala where she saw extreme poverty and food insecurity and worked to improve malnutrition. Since “local is global,” after receiving her Masters in Global Health, she decided to focus her efforts domestically as she realized there is much work to be addressed here in the United States regarding the same issues of poverty, malnutrition and food insecurity. A transplant from Tennessee, Plumlee has fallen in love with Omaha and Nebraska as a whole. Although red isn't really her color, she enjoys living the Good Life. No matter where home is, she always keeps a garden to remind her of family, food and fortune.
