Why am I at Posner?
Have you ever heard the phrase “geography is destiny”? I’m here to support organizations who build the local capacity in communities around the world that will prove this idea wrong. I truly believe that if we work together and combine strengths, we can do so much more good, better.
What gets me fired up?
Climate change. People-focused development. Maps. Yoga. Saltwater. Boston sports. Travel. Food (growing, cooking and eating).
More about me:
I’m an East Coast transplant, native to Rhode Island (ever met one of us?). I spent seven years in D.C. before getting smart and heading West. Outside of work I spend a lot of time outdoors, and checking out Denver’s many breweries.
Ask me about:
Environment/climate communication. Water access in informal settlements. GIS.
Some of my flashy credentials:
- Studied Geography and Journalism at George Washington University
- Masters in International Development from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies (DU)
- Presented on entrepreneurial water management systems in informal settlements at the Society For Applied Anthropology 2013 meeting
