Personal pronouns: She, her, hers

I am a passionate activist with a focus on environmental, climate, social and racial justice. I am pursuing a Master's of Environmental Law and Policy, with a concentration in Climate Law from Vermont Law School, and have a B. A. in Environmental Studies and Political Science from Northeastern University. I completed internships with the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance and Division of Conservation Services focusing on incorporating environmental justice in each agency's daily work. I also worked with the City of Boston's Greenovate Boston program to further community engagement in the City's Climate Action Plan. I currently work for the Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association (NEWMOA), where I assist with supporting the activities of the Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC) and the Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse (IC2). I enjoys hiking with my husband, traveling, and reading.
