  • How did you get into the clean energy field?

    Though I've known for years that I wanted to work in the broad field of environment, I approached it from many angles—environmental science, advocacy, conservation—before landing in energy. I came to clean energy after studying climate and environmental policy in grad school at the University of Washington.

  • What are you passionate about? What are the ideas that drive you?

    I'm passionate about climate solutions that address all aspects of "environment"—culture, economics, conservation, sustainability, etc. I'm driven by the hope that an equitable, thriving, clean energy future is still possible!

  • What’s currently on your desk?

    A glow-in-the-dark jellyfish paperweight I bought while I was a volunteer docent at the Seattle Aquarium in high school.
