I have a PhD in Civil Engineering with a specialization in environmental engineering, a BS in chemistry and public health, and regulatory experience at the state level that has prepared me for an interdisciplinary environmental career. With over nine years of experience, my background includes fieldwork in wastewater systems and research experience in stormwater and wastewater quality. I conducted research for a stormwater implementation project in the District of Columbia and worked on a USEPA research project that focused on the wastewater treatability of emerging contaminants.
I have four years of educational experience in the classroom in secondary and post-secondary platforms teaching STEM-related courses.
I currently work in community engagement around climate change and climate resiliency. My work intersects environmental policy, education, and advocacy.
