Region: North Coast
Project(s): Climate Action Plan Preparation
Growing up in the Bay Area, I loved to spend time surfing and exploring local parks and forests. These experiences informed my choice to study biology at Brown University, where I developed a passion for and intellectual investment in protecting the natural world. After graduating, I worked briefly as an environmental journalist, and ultimately decided to pursue a CivicSpark Fellowship to work directly on climate change mitigation efforts and make a difference on the local level. Through my Fellowship, I hope to learn how local government functions and gain experience engaging community members on climate change-related issues.
