Meet our crew!

 

Arielle Adams,

Program Assistant

Just moved from Savannah, GA with my little sister and stumbled into such an amazing job here at the HRDC. I’d never heard of a nonprofit like this before, where you can be a force for good, for a living! I’m very excited for my future here in Bozeman.

Where to Find Me: Fork & Spoon, the Mighty Spork Food Truck, and the Gallatin Valley Food Bank

Hobbies: Reading, Movies, TV, painting, crocheting, weaving, cooking, really anything creative and hands-on.

Favorite thing about working at HRDC: So many different ways to help people!

Mathia Jacobson,

Food Rescue Coordinator

I am responsible for the Food Rescue program at the food bank! I can be found out at our local grocery stores, bakeries, and businesses collecting donations. I also recruit volunteer drivers to help out on our routes. When I am not rescuing food, I am coordinating pickups/drop offs, as well as helping out throughout the warehouse and store. I am so happy to help the community reduce their waste as well as increase the access to meals and healthy food. 

I am originally from Minnesota. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2021 with a BASc in Public Health. During my time out west I have worked as a COVID-19 Contact Tracer and with a Yellowstone Tour company based out of Big Ski. 

Outside of the Food Bank, I love supporting local breweries and restaurants. In the snowy months I am skiing and in the warmer months I am biking and hiking! I also enjoy relaxing with a good book by the fire or in the sunshine. 

Rachel Salang,

Outreach Coordinator

My work is centered in helping support our mission as a community effort! I do this by maintaining our communications and online presence, supporting community food drives, and working with local organizations and media, among other outreach projects. I am one of the co-chairs for our annual Huffing for Stuffing fundraising race, the backup for our volunteer coordinator, and I help out in the warehouse as needed. I’m incredibly honored to be part of an organization that helps strengthen our community every day!

I previously worked in nonprofit racial and LGBTQ+ justice/equity and have an educational background in Sociology from UC San Diego. I also worked in libraries and in publications as a writer and editor. Outside of work, you can find me spending a lot of my free time listening to and playing music. I also love writing poetry and short stories, video games, road trips, my dog, and spending time with friends and family.

Olivia Smart,

Childhood Nutrition Programs Coordinator

Hi! My name is Olivia and I am the Childhood Nutrition Programs Coordinator at the HRDC/Food Bank. I am in charge of the Summer Lunch Program and KidsPack. 

I graduated this Spring from MSU with my Master’s degree in Dietetic Systems Leadership along with my Dietetic Internship, and I hope to become a credentialed dietitian by the end of this year. This will allow me to provide more specialized nutrition education and counseling to the wonderful people in Bozeman! 

I hope to positively impact the way individuals approach food in their everyday lives. I believe in a health at any size approach, that is rooted in a nutrient rich lifestyle. There is always a place for a sweet treat! I am always game for a vegan donut!

When I am not at work, I can be found spending time with my Chinchilla; Rue, and Hamster; Butter, or watching a concerning amount of tiktoks and reruns of my favorite shows.

Kennison Spiering,

Service Navigator / Customer Care Coordinator

After growing up in rural Wyoming, I have spent the last two or three years settling into Bozeman. I feel incredibly fortunate to live in such a beautiful place where I can ski, rock climb, fly fish, and frolic outside all year round. Most evenings, I play instruments with friends and love all things music!

As a Service Navigator, I support clients with resources in both English and Spanish, frequently coordinating with other branches of the HRDC and local partners. Connecting with others has always been an important part of my life and I am stoked to be in a role that allows me to interact with our community in a meaningful way.

When I’m not in Bozeman, I enjoy traveling, exploring different cultures, and trying new foods!
