Born and raised in the Bay Area, Lizzie Carrade became interested in California environmental politics and policy early in life. She graduated from Claremont McKenna College with a degree in government and legal studies in 2018, and plans to apply that knowledge to a career in sustainability. After writing her senior thesis on sea level rise and climate change litigation in California, she is thrilled to be working with the City of Albany as it implements its Climate Action Plan 2.0. She is excited to get hands-on experience working with a city government, and learning more about how local government offices can prepare for the effects of climate change.
