My background: Before joining the UI Office of Sustainability, I spent ten years in St. Louis, working in various sustainability positions. My career has included working as a recycling program manager and an environmental health officer for the City of St. Louis. I also served as the sustainability outreach and education coordinator for Brightside St. Louis, a non-profit organization. My academic background includes a B.A. from Augustana College with a major in geology and minor in environmental studies and a M.S. in Environmental Science Management from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Why I’m passionate about sustainability: I want to help create a world that values, protects, and sustainably manages the natural resources we depend on so that current and future generations have access to the resources needed to live long, happy, healthy lives.
