Encouraging cooperative growth across Appalachia in order to create a more equitable relationship between work and the individual

Adam grew up in Eastern Kentucky, and has lived in several Kentucky counties.  While in law school, Adam got involved in organizing cooperatives all over the Louisville area.  He worked closely with law school faculty on various legal and research projects to support coop growth.  Recently, Adam helped organize a Start-Up Weekend competition that supported new businesses, including several budding cooperatives.  Now that Adam has gained his law license in both West Virginia and Kentucky this year, he looks forward to supporting businesses that are truly attune to their community’s needs.  He is especially interested in supporting new cooperative businesses in rural areas.  Adam earned his J.D. from University of Louisville in 2020, and his B.A. in English from Centre College in 2017.  Adam lives in Kentucky with his wife and two cats.  In his free time, Adam likes to read and tend his numerous house plants.
