  • Description

    I am passionate about any work with communities and involving environmentally sustainable projects.

    I have two degrees in Nutrition and Spanish with a minor in Biology. I also was a soil researcher at the University of Minnesota in their department of Soil, Water, and Climate. I have helped with two nonprofit startups. The first one is called the Blue Earth Project whose focus is heavily on water systems to promote ecological sustainability throughout Southern Minnesota. In addition, I am on the Mango Community Farm team in Haiti where we are installing solar panel well pumps and a large sustainable community garden to support impoverished communities.

    I planned and facilitated the first ever Earth Day celebration at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait which successfully raised $2,000 in funds and showed soldiers and contractors how to compost, even in the most arid of conditions. My focus lies with creating a more sustainable future, starting with impoverished communities and expanding practices through there. One of my goals is to work with various indigenous communities in the Amazon to help protect their lands and learn from them as well.
