Outreach Interns

Outreach Director:

Clara Dockter| cadockter@wisc.edu


Clara is a junior from Saint Paul, MN double majoring in geography and environmental studies. For Clara, food is her community and her culture. Starting as a Teen Cooking Night Intern with the South Madison Project, Clara quickly discovered her passion for all things relating to Slow Food UW, from the coo:king to the people. Now, Clara is the Outreach Director where she works with her team of interns to educate and engage the UW-Madison community on our food system. Clara is one overjoyed snail to be a part of the Outreach Project and work to bring clean, fair, good and just food to all. Cheers!

Project Integration Intern:

Annaleigh Wetzel | awetzel2@wisc.edu


Annaleigh Wetzel is a junior studying strategic communications within the J-School. As a lover of all things food, she can’t wait to get started as a Slow Food UW intern. The Project Integration intern position is a perfect fit for Annaleigh because she really enjoys meeting new people, and from that, making new friends! Beyond college, her dream job would be to work as a writer for Bon Appetit magazine, merging her interests in both communications and food. For now, though, Annaleigh spends her days running, doing yoga, hanging out with friends & family, exploring Madison and eating… but, of course!

Cook-to-Connect Interns:

Brenna O’Dea | bgodea@wisc.edu

Dormant Chef Intern:

Sarah Clifford | seclifford@wisc.edu

Sarah Clifford

 Sarah is a sophomore at UW-Madison majoring in Life Sciences Communication with intents to add another “science-y” major and a Global Health certificate. She hopes to bring her love of science, vegetarianism, and dirty Harry Potter jokes to the Slow Food community. Sarah hails from the northwest suburbs of Chicago where she enjoys playing tennis, critiquing coffee, and baking caloric desserts for all her friends. She’s very excited to be filling the Dormant Chef position (although she’s still trying to figure out how she’ll be sleeping while cooking) and can’t wait to spread her love of food with the rest of the dorm life, as she resides in Dejope herself. Sarah’s goal is to emphasize the importance of clean, fair, sustainable eating habits throughout campus in ways that are practical given the constraints of mini-fridges and microwave ovens.

Recipes for Change Intern:

Holly Henriksen | henriksen@wisc.edu


Holly is a junior majoring in Wildlife Ecology and Environmental Studies with a certificate in African Studies. She wants to use Recipes for Change as a tool for social awareness through collective dialogue over delicious meals! She’s all about kale, loves endurance sports (yes, really!) and is pretty much the female reincarnation of Bear Grylls. She’s super excited to be a part of the Outreach team and the Slow Food UW organization, and can’t wait to see you at the next Recipe’s for Change!
