Tell Us About Yourself!

"I'm a digital marketing strategist and currently pursuing my M.A. at SCAD. I've always been passionate about being kind to the environment, but believe it is particularly imperative now to take the necessary actions to protect our home from the disastrous effects of climate change. I do my best to lead an environmentally sustainable life and love to learn new ways of implementing this goal into my daily activities. My most recent passion project has been finding ways to recycle any product I want to get rid of (i.e. textiles, old trophies, worn out shoes, etc.)."

Of the three elements of the mission statement, which issue is most important to you?

"Enhancing quality of life in environmentally marginalized communities."

What is your favorite tip to live a more sustainable life?

"Do your best to shop less and shop better. Fast fashion is one of the greatest sources for pollution, so try to support small businesses that are providing more sustainable options whenever possible when you need to purchase something." 

Where do you think is one of the most beautiful places in Texas? 

"Fredericksburg, Texas is one of my favorite places!"
