Devra Gartenstein [EN] she/her. Devra owned and ran small food businesses for 25 years before collaborating with coworkers to convert her most recent business into a worker-owned cooperative. In the process, she fell in love with the cooperative model and began working with the USFWC as a peer advisor. Devra is especially interested in strategic planning and business models, believing that it is especially important for mission-driven businesses to be financially viable so they can have sufficient resources to manifest their dreams. Her most recent venture is New Day Cooperative Distribution, a producer-owned grocery home delivery service.
