About Us

Lauren Rudersdorf

Office Manager

Lauren discovered Midwest Environmental Advocates during her time as an undergrad at UW-Madison. She applied for a volunteer position to learn more about a future that might involve law school or a non-profit career. What she discovered instead was a passion for MEA’s mission. Lauren volunteered for MEA for three years throughout her undergraduate career while pursuing a degree in Rural Sociology from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Lauren was honored to join the staff at MEA in 2015 where she works part-time. She and her husband own and operate Raleigh's Hillside Farm, a 50-member, Community Supported Agriculture farm south of Madison which is transitioning to organic. She is enthusiastic about Wisconsin, our environment and growing our local food system. In her free time, she loves to hike, run, camp, cook and blog about food.
