You are here
I was born in North Mankato, MN. Growing up I always enjoyed being outdoors (hiking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, ect). As I grew older I watched as all my favorite outdoor locations slowly stared to deteriorate. Seeing this made me realize how delicate our ecosystems are and started my passion for environmental stewardship and sustainability. This passion drove me to attend UMD and pursue a degree in Environment and Sustainability with a focus in both Energy Engineering and Environmental Science. I just finished my third year here at UMD. Along with my Energy Intern position within the Office of Sustainability I am also an Environmental Task Force leader for MPIRG.
