Meet Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Flavor Guru Natalia Butler '12MS, learn about the art and science of perfecting ice cream flavors, and how she combined her passions to land her dream job.

Growing up in Puerto Rico, Natalia's family owned three restaurants, so early on she learned to love and respect the process of making (and eating) great food. In college, she pursued her other main interest—chemistry. When she learned that food science was a real career path, she saw a great opportunity. Natalia earned her master’s degree in Food Science from UMass Amherst and then joined the Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru team in 2016, where she now perfects Pint Slices (mini cups) and oversees new markets across the world. 

No cost to attend. All are welcome.
