About Me

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my world.

I’m a passionate sustainability advocate who envisions a just and vibrant future for all. I position my work at the intersection of city planning, storytelling, and climate-feminist solutions.

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.

In the next 5 years, I hope to be engaged with local community members on creating strategies and plan-frameworks for responding to local climate change impacts, while advocating for multi-scale decarbonization policies. The emphasis of this work will be on ensuring climate justice, equitable decision-making, and transformational change. We will develop strategies that are transparent, creative, and climate-feminist at their core. 

Come join me, as I share here 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?
