Region: Central Coast

Project(s): Strategic Energy Plan Implementation and Regional Climate Collaborative Support Email: ktakemoto@civicspark.lgc.org Fellow Bio:

Karina grew up in Santa Clarita with a family that fostered love of the outdoors through hiking, backpacking, surfing and climbing. She spent the past five years in Orange County, CA and recently graduated from University of California, Irvine where she studied Business Economics, International Studies, and Global Sustainability. Karina has always been interested in how companies and governments could prosper both economically and socially, while still adopting environmentally sound policy. She feels that CivicSpark embodies this same goal and thus looks forward to helping the City of Goleta reach its 100% renewable energy goals.
