Professional Staff

During the school year, the EC has two full-time staff. We share many of the Environmental Center responsibilities, but we each have specific oversight of a few areas of our work.

Driven by my love for the outdoors, I seek to find ways that modern society can simultaneously improve human welfare while reducing negative impacts on the natural environment. 

Specific areas of involvement include:

  • Zero Waste initiatives, including campus recycling and institutional composting
  • Climate and Energy initiatives
  • Communications and promotions including the EC Digest
  • Large-scale events and programs
  • Strategic planning and new initiatives
  • Donor and fundraising opportunities

I think answers to many of the questions in in our lives can be found in nature and by examining healthy and intact ecosystems. I love to chat with others about their experiences connecting with ecosystems: your latest adventure in a wild place, the veggies or plants you’re growing, a meaningful meal you cooked with loved-ones, or any ideas you have about restoring and sustaining the social and ecological fabric of our campus!

Specific areas of involvement include:

  • Local Food initiatives, including our campus garden and orchard
  • Campus food service sustainability
  • Ecology and lands initiatives
  • EC office management and administration
  • Student member hiring and HR

Student Team Members
