Influenced by my childhood days of reading Ranger Rick, I've always wanted to work with and write about nature. Now, I'm a senior studying political communication and geography at George Washington University. Starting in August, I'll be a Master of Science candidate in the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan.
Through my experiences interning for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Wilderness Society, I've developed an interest in land conservation, access, and management. Protecting national lands may be America's best idea, but we still have much to learn about how to take care of them. As an intern for Climate Nexus, I learned about climate communication and the research that goes into crafting and framing the climate conversation.
I'm also interested in stories about environmental justice, diversity, gender, and race as they pertain to environmental issues.
Current life goal: to visit every U.S. National Park. Current professional goal: to be an environmental journalist, lobbyist, lawyer, and Saturday Night Live writer all at once. I'll let you know how it goes.
