  • Environmental Justice

I’ve had the privilege of growing up in San Francisco, CA with heavy emphasis on place-based learning and access to natural spaces and outdoor recreation. From this love of being outside, I’ve learned more about and gotten experience in conservation and stewardship. I’m majoring in Environmental Justice and am really interested in connecting more people with the environment and their surroundings, especially those who have been purposefully excluded, through education, food, and recreation. Outside of conservation and justice work, I also enjoy playing games and sports, outdoor rec, and reading and writing.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
