About Me

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my world.

I am a city planner, a scholar, and a storyteller who envisions a truly sustainable and just future for all of our communities.

I’m a graduate student attending The Ohio State University, where I will earn my Master’s in City and Regional Planning by May 2022. I hold a Bachelor of Specialized Studies (May 2018) in “Feminist Political Ecology,” a minor in journalism from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, and a Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Certificate from Ohio University.

Aligning my work experiences with my personal values has always been important to me. I enjoy celebrating life through dance and outdoor adventures of all kinds, grounding myself with writing, and staying connected with my family and friends.

Come join me, as I uncover and share how “it all connects.” Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s collaborate to create a more climate-just world for the future, shall we?
