M.S. Candidate, Dual Degree – MS3/MRP


Sustainability Science program page

A lifelong resident of Massachusetts, I graduated from Umass Boston in 2016 with my bachelors degree in Political Science. As an undergraduate I focused my time on different political campaigns and policy projects for groups focused on issues ranging from climate justice to electoral reform. After graduating I became interested in urban planning and addressing major problems at the local level. In 2018 I attended a hands-on program in New Mexico to learn about building regenerative housing, and in 2019 I was elected as a Town Meeting Member in my hometown of Danvers, Massachusetts. I am excited to study in the MS3 and MRP Programs, and believe they will help me to become a more effective proponent in my field.
