About Me

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my world. I’m an aspiring climate planner, a feminist geographer, and a multimedia storyteller.

Currently, I am a graduate student attending The Ohio State University, where I will earn a Master of City and Regional Planning degree 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 professional work experiences with my personal values has always been incredibly 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 continue to share this story at the human-environment intersection, and channel participatory action as the foundation that connects our communities.

Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s create a more climate-just world for the future, shall we?
