How long have you been a WEN member? If a Board member, please state your position and how you bring value to the team.
I have been a WEN member for the past 3 years. I became a WEN Board member two months ago and focus on promoting WEN events through social media. I enjoy connecting people and I look forward to growing the network of environmental women leaders in the Bay Area.
Tell us more about yourself.
I was born in Brooklyn, raised in New Jersey, and I have lived in San Francisco for five years. During college I studied abroad in Hanoi, Vietnam for 3 months, and years later I completed a graduate policy-consulting project in Guangzhou, China. I have been an active environmentalist for the past ten years and these experiences further confirmed my passion to make the world a better place through environmental and energy work.
What do you like best about being part of WEN?
Over the years WEN has developed a group of intelligent and strong women that are trying to make a positive change through their work in the environmental space. WEN provides a venue for discovery and learning and I always appreciate the diverse conversations with the women I meet at our events.
What are some of your other activities?
I love being active in nature, traveling to new countries, and cooking a nice meal from the farmers market. Some of my favorite activities include: camping, snowboarding, rock climbing, yoga, biking, and road trips.
What environmental issues are of most concern to you?
Climate change and recycling are big drivers of my professional work and lifestyle choices. I believe that small actions make a big difference, even if they don’t seem like it, and awareness and education on these issues cannot be underestimated.
