Communications Intern

My background: I am a fourth-year student majoring in Economics BBA and minoring in Spanish and Environmental Policy & Planning. I worked as an Orientation Leader the summer after my first year of college. I served as the Sustainability Chair of a business fraternity and started a precedent of compostable plates at all fraternity events. I also invited Silvia Secchi to speak to the chapter about sustainability in business. In summer of 2019, I studied abroad in Argentina to study their public health system. I currently serve as the Finance Committee Chair for UISG. I like to emphasize the importance of environmental, economic, and social sustainability when thinking about sustainability. After graduation, I plan to attend law school to study environmental law.

Why I’m passionate about sustainability: As a business student, I recognize the large impact businesses can have on our environment and I look for opportunities to encourage peers to consider environmental sustainability in their future careers. I'd like to break down the barriers to sustainability and help people realize that small changes are still changes. 

Contact me about: Getting yourself, your department, or your student org involved with our office, and promoting and/or creating sustainability-related events.
