Andi spends most of her days in the make room, but also helps out in processing and hauling the milk from the dairy to our creamery at the Farm Barn. (She helps to coordinate our table at the Burlington Farmers’ Markets, too.) Andi previously worked for Whole Foods Market in a variety of roles, including wine and beer buyer, cheesemonger, and specialty food department manager. Working behind the counter, she fell in love with the history and terroir of cheese, and became an American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional in 2016. Andi’s passion for cheese (and a well-timed visit to Shelburne Farms) is what inspired her to move from south Florida to pursue a career in cheesemaking. Andi currently serves as secretary of the Vermont Cheese Council and co-chair of the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival. Her hobbies include reading (usually about cheese), yoga, and traveling — especially beer, wine, and food-focused adventures.
