Nan Seymour, Executive Director
Nan Seymour arrived at Local First Utah in March of 2012 with 17 years of small business experience as a local bakery owner. Her passion for building community grew while serving up free slices of warm bread to her Holladay neighbors from behind the breadboard at Great Harvest Bread Company. A lover of all things local, Nan has been a dedicated fan of Local First Utah from our debut in 2005. She recently returned to the University of Utah, where she enjoyed studying poetry and received a BA in English. She loves living in the Avenues neighborhood of Salt Lake City with her teenage son and rescued mutt, where she can easily walk to a variety of local shops and restaurants.
Kristen Lavelett, Assistant Director
Kristen Lavelett joined Local First Utah in July 2010. Kristen has lived in Salt Lake City for ten years, and desired to become a part of the Local First movement when she had the realization that all of the places she loved to eat, drink and shop at in the city were ornamented by the "Buy Local First" window cling. Currently studying political science, Kristen hopes to continue working in the non-profit realm upon graduation from the University of Utah. Kristen leads a small group at The Rock Church, loves to cook, travel and go to concerts.
Alex Adams, Photographer
While working for local restaurants Alex became a big supporter of Local First Utah and its mission to promote independent businesses. As a photographer, she specializes in weddings and portraits, which means she is lucky enough to photograph the essence of what makes life so great: having babies, getting married, overcoming obstacles, starting new careers, or watching families grow. To her, photos are more magical when people are in them. Since graduating from photography school in Montana, she has settled back in Salt Lake City where she is fortunate enough to shoot for amazing clients, as well as local businesses and non-profits whose missions and products she thinks are awesome.
