Fellow Bio:

Bella is a San Diego native and a recent graduate of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington where she earned a B.A. in Political Science & Environmental Studies and a minor in Philosophy. She believes that environmental concern should not be a partisan issue but rather the framework through which we operate as a society. Bella’s interests are primarily on the intersections of human history, politics, and the environment. This interest in the role of various stakeholders and their claims to common resources led her to an internship with the Spokane Riverkeeper. In addition to her professional interests, Bella was a member of the Gonzaga University Rowing Team and served as Team Captain in her senior year. Bella is excited to return home to San Diego as a CivicSpark Fellow and to work with the various stakeholders and to learn about the environmental needs of her community.
