Holly Napier

 

New Agrarian Program Southwest Coordinator

Holly was raised in the mountains outside of Durango, CO.  She was fortunate that her family ran an outdoor education business. She actively participated in backpacking tours, bike tours through the western United States and Canada, and Habitat for Humanity work trips in Mexico. She earned her undergraduate degree at Northern Arizona University and worked with children’s outdoor educational camps that explored native cultures and the landscape of Northern Arizona.   She holds an M.Agr. in Agriculture Sciences–Integrated Resource Management and a Graduate Certificate in Applied Global Stability in Agriculture from Colorado State University. Her professional experience includes running a diversified farm that produced pastured broiler chickens, eggs, lamb, and goat meat. She worked as the office and production manager at her local USDA-inspected meat processing facility, where she enjoyed working with local livestock producers and helping to provide healthy, locally raised food for her community.  Currently, she lives on a farm in southwestern Colorado with chickens, goats, sheep, guard dogs, cats, and many family members.  She is thankful to be working with Quivira and excited to support mentors and apprentices in Southern Colorado and New Mexico.
