M.S. Candidate, Urban Sustainability


Sustainability Science program page

My background is in the performing arts, and from 1999 to 2015, in IT as a Technology Analyst at Harvard Business School. Originally from a small town in North Carolina, I studied dance in LA, and lived in the UK and other parts of Europe in my 20s and early 30s. I love to travel and have made Massachusetts my home for the last 20 years. A recent transplant from Boston to western MA, I’m thrilled to be part of the MS3 program. This latest chapter of my life was initiated through my interest in ‘urban homesteading’, living more sustainably, and the permaculture course I took in 2015. When not listening to NPR and fretting about our political situation, climate change, or the pandemic, I hike as much as possible in the hills around Greenfield. I also love SUP, kayaking, dancing, and windsurfing.
