Christy Wipperfurth

Christy Wipperfurth is a Grants Management Specialist with the USDA-Agricultural Marketing Service’s Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Program (FMLFPP). In this role, she helps organizations with all aspects of a federal grant (application, post-award, closeout), while also providing direct technical assistance. She joined USDA-AMS nearly 12 years ago, bringing valuable experience from the private sector. Christy earned her Masters of AgriBusiness (MAB) from Kansas State University, B.S. in Animal Science and Agricultural Business from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and holds industry certifications such as HACCP and ISO 9001. Her passion and dedication to agriculture stem from her rural upbringing on the family farm, where she frequently returns to ensure her children have the same experiences.
