Corissa Damato

Corissa Damato is a Farm Store and Visitor Center associate at Stone Barns Center. Her passion for the environment sprouted at a young age through volunteer experiences with the Teatown Lake Reservation, Global Works and Hilltop Hanover Farm. Previously, Corissa worked for Nodeweave Technologies, where she supported the development of data analysis software by researching new markets. Her interest in the growth and development of an environmentally sustainable food future led her to change course and join the team at Stone Barns Center.

At Stone Barns Center, Corissa helps ensure that all visitors have an enjoyable and carefree time on the farm.
