Syri Mongiello grew up in Taos and has lived in Santa Fe since 2015. She holds a master’s degree in Nonprofit Management from the University of San Francisco and has a background in arts administration. Prior to joining the Institute staff in 2015, Syri was the Operations Manager for Arts & Ideas programs at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, where she worked for 12 years. Syri loves working with the Institute and Farmer’ Market staff, vendors and volunteers and feels great about helping to provide the community with access to fresh, healthy, locally-grown food. Outside of work, Syri spends the majority of her time chasing after her 3-year old son (she also likes hiking and going to the movies, but rarely has time for either).
