My fascination with nature began with catching polliwogs, culminated with chasing bears out of campgrounds in Yosemite National Park, and is now firmly established in teaching the key principles of maintaining a sustainable planet as our home. My educational mediums are sustainability courses at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, co-hosting The Climate Minute podcast, and the book I co-authored, Protecting the Planet: Environmental Champions from Conservation to Climate Change. I have led individuals and teams in environmental stewardship and education in both corporate and non-profit settings. I am currently pursuing doctoral studies in Science Communication, with a focus on climate, at Otago University. I hold a masters in Sustainability and Environmental Management from Harvard University Extension School and a bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in environment and human values from Trinity College.
Candidate for Ph.D. in climate communication. Published author on climate change solutions. Extensive research and teaching experience in sustainability, biology, ecology, and climate science. Podcast producer and co-host. Cross-departmental collaboration skills. Recognized regularly for exceptional performance. Award-winning presenter.

Marathons - many miles on my running shoes! Ten years racing marathons with the Somerville Road Runners; Three years as co-founder and member of Craft Concept Racing, New England’s fastest female running team of 2016 & 2017, as ranked by USA Track and Field.
