Major: Environmental Policy and Decision Making (EPDM)
Specialization: Policy and Governance

Future Career Plans: I plan on attending law school and entering the field of environmental law.

Favorite Part of SENR/OSU: I love SENR because of the shared passion that everyone feels for the environment. I feel as though I am a part of something bigger than myself in SENR and I know that all of us as students will go on to do amazing things.

Internship Experience:  Current virtual summer intern (summer 2021) with Seaside Sustainability. I work with other interns on a variety of projects on the Legislation and Green Scholars teams. On Legislation, I have worked on informational videos on COVID PPE pollution, and worked on drafting an updated clean marina guide for Massachusetts. On Green Scholars I help to develop a curriculum for local middle and high school students on environmentally friendly habits and professional skills. I have learned so much about working on a team in the environmental field, researching, and professional writing.
