Lauren Smith

Development Director

Lauren is in her 20th year at PASA and has seen incredible organizational growth and impressive increases in small farms selling REAL food. Lauren began her professional life managing an import/retail business in 1979, then transitioned in 1981 to a decade-long career in development work at Greenpeace USA, where she became the National Merchandise Director, overseeing the retail and mail order divisions. Shifting careers again in 1993, she became the sales manager of an organic produce company, which led her to PASA in 1996, where she started as manager of membership and the annual conference. Lauren is currently the Director of Development and is passionate about connecting people with the PASA mission. She enjoys cooking (with plenty of local ingredients!) and projects at their circa 1827 home in Aaronsburg, the geographic center of Pennsylvania.
