Region: Inland Empire
Project(s): Health in All Policies Support
Originally from the Inland Empire, Mairany attended Wellesley College in Massachusetts and graduated with a B.A. in Geosciences and a minor in Economics. During her senior year, she was part of a research lab that analyzed the presence of anthropogenic impacts in sediment cores from a local lake- Walden Pond in Concord, MA. Through this research experience, her college courses, and current community involvement as a Recreation Leader for the City of Ontario, Mairany became passionate about learning how climate issues affect disadvantaged communities in the Inland Empire. As a CivicSpark fellow, Mairany hopes to learn more about the projects being implemented and actions taken in order to combat the ill effects of climate change in her region.
