I spent the first 17 years of my life in Chicago, IL. I moved to New Mexico to finish my last two years of high school at United World College USA, an international boarding school focused on intercultural understanding and sustainability. There, I fell in love with the outdoors and began backpacking and rock climbing. Inside, I love to dance, sew and play ukulele. I currently attend The College of Idaho and study Environmental Studies and Biology, with an emphasis on conservation. I spend most of my time learning, being outside and in good company.

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.
