Allie is excited to return to the Bay Area after spending the past five years on the central coast in San Luis Obispo. She graduated with a degree in Environmental Management and Protection and a concentration in Indigenous Studies in natural Resources, and Spanish from Cal Poly. During her senior year, Allie worked with the environmental non-profit One Cool Earth and served as a Garden Educator Manager, managing and teaching in local elementary school food gardens, teaching culturally appropriate, garden-based science and nutrition lessons in Spanish and English to K-6 students. She is excited to become a CivicSpark Fellow to learn more from a new community and apply her passion for community-based local solutions to climate change and environmental justice issues on a larger scale in local government.
