  • Natural Resource Conservation

I am an avid nature lover who is passionate about plants and the relationships people have with them. Specifically, I am interested in cultural preservation through plant conservation and encouraging members of underserved communities to reconnect with nature through urban gardening and public education. My future goals include promoting the inclusion of minorities in outdoor recreational settings and decolonizing the history behind national and state parks.

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.
