University of Cincinnati alumna with a passion for environmental engineering, equity, and inclusion. Sustainability and diversity are my greatest focus when building community. Completed research for the study of PFAS and biological treatments in the Ohio River alongside designing and racing a concrete canoe in Hidden Valley lake are highlights from undergraduate extracurricular experiences. Professionally, I have held two coop rotations within the energy department at The Kroger Co. I have helped more than 1500 Kroger locations —from convenience stores to multi level marketplaces—cut back on energy cost. This was groundbreaking for me as a tangible representation of my mission to increase sustainability. Most recent professional experience includes spearheafing the tourism component of the Long Range Transportation Plan for OKI Regional Council of of Governments. Alongside work at OKi Regional Council of Governments, I became a board member for the nonprofit Taking Root with a focus on web design. Also spent time creating the Greenspace Gems web application for Green Umbrella with expertise from OKI Regional Council of Governments planning department. Volunteer experiences in free time include helping develop permaculture practices for Tikkun Farm.
