Personal Summary

I have a masters in sustainable systems and a bachelors in environmental science and sustainability with a minor in toxicology. I bring a unique perspective on sustainability because I have not always been interested in this concept. I developed a passion for sustainability as I have progressed in my academic and personal experiences. I now would like to pursue a professional career in guiding the community around me to strive towards a better, more cognizant future.
