Tristana Pirkl

Outdoor Education Leader | Whole Kids Foundation

In college, I followed my love of food and its connection to health through my studies in human biology at Stanford University. After graduation, I coordinated the children’s services for a Bay Area nonprofit that serves families in need, and saw firsthand how much need there is for an innovative, mission-driven organization like Whole Kids Foundation.

At home, I’ve also become an avid gardener. Growing my own food has been a magical learning experience I wish I’d had as a child in school. I’m so excited to bring this experience to kids through our School Garden Grant Program. Joining the Whole Kids Foundation team has truly been a culmination of my passions and a dream come true!
