What drives you? I have always been passionate about the natural world and the planet and how we as a species impact it. Realizing that climate change is more than an environmental issue but also a social and economic issue really drives home the fact that it will impact everyone on this planet in some way.
What projects do you work on that you love or are most passionate about and why? Working on any projects that work toward improving a client’s environmental standing and also being able to see that they are excited about the outcomes of lowering their overall carbon footprint!
Career highlight/game changing project/something that made a big impact: When I was 9 years old, An Inconvenient Truth was released and whilst watching it I had the overwhelming urge to tell everyone I knew about climate change. I went to my primary school’s principal and asked to give an assembly to all the students (about 300) on Earth Day. Along with a presentation I also went to my local grocery store and collected over 300 paper bags where the students in the school created an art piece relating to the planet/nature. These paper bags were used to decorate the hallways of the school and were later donated back to the local grocery store to be re-used as grocery bags! Ever since then, I knew that I wanted to be involved in the environmental and climate change space, and I am happy to be with the Ndevr Environmental team doing just that!
