Pauline Lauvin grew up near Paris and holds a Master's Degree in Agriculture and Food Sciences from the Superior Institute of Agriculture located in Lyon, France.
Her studies taught her as much about livestock breeding and agriculture as about food manufacturing, and she even completed a summer internship where she made goat cheese by hand on a farm. She spent one Semester studying at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina and then spent the following 2 months backpacking from Argentina to Peru.
After moving to the United States 6 years ago, she first worked for a nonprofit placing foreign exchange students with host families, a cause close to her heart as she was an exchange student in the US during high school. Prior to joining the Non-GMO Project Pauline worked in Quality Assurance for a Bellingham organic food manufacturing company. She is excited to play a part in helping consumers make informed food choices by offering them a non-GMO seal they can trust.
Outside of work, Pauline spends most of her time spoiling her two cats, working on various crafts projects, baking elaborate cakes, and running the beautiful trails in the area.
