In the fall, I will be heading into my final year at the University of California, Davis studying Environmental Science and Management with an emphasis in Natural Resource Management. When I’m not busy advocating for or conserving wilderness, I can be found exploring the many beautiful aspects of nature, with an emphasis on Oregon this summer as I learn more about this state that is practically new to me.

I’m going into my senior year at the University of Oregon and double majoring in Political Science and Environmental Science with a minor in Business Administration. When I am not in the office I am either exploring Oregon’s beauty with friends or working with fellow classmates to fight environmental justice issues relating to aerial herbicide spraying.
