Influenced by my childhood days of reading Ranger Rick, I've always wanted to work with and write about nature. Now, I'm a Master of Science candidate in the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan and a recent political communication graduate from George Washington University.
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. I'm also interested in climate communication and the research that goes into crafting and framing the climate conversation, which I learned about while interning for Climate Nexus.
I strive to highlight stories about environmental justice, gender, and race as they pertain to environmental issues. I believe race and gender are at the center of every environmental issue, and thus they should be at the center of all environmental journalism.
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.
