Fellow Bio:

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Margaux is passionate about the California ecosystem. As climate change threatens this ecosystem, Margaux has decided to channel her career goals towards protecting the environment and mitigating the effects of such crisis.

Margaux graduated from McGill University with a major in environment and a double minor in international development studies and economics. One semester was spent on the McGill East Africa Field Study, where she took part in field work and community engagement in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, tackling the pressing socio-environmental issues affecting the region. Now, she seeks to gain experience in local environmental policy work, focusing on climate action for her own hometown. As a CivicSparks fellow for SFE, she looks forward to helping San Francisco achieve its environmental sustainability goals.
