M.S. Candidate, Urban Sustainability


Sustainability Science program page

I grew up on a farm in Vermont, and have lived in western Massachusetts for the past 16 years. My background is in communications, and I have worked for magazines and newspapers, run a video production company, and produced documentary films. Currently I work in the UMass undergraduate admissions office, producing videos and managing digital communications projects. I am on the urban sustainability track, and am interested in developing skills and knowledge so that I can effectively communicate about sustainability, and turn research and best practices into reports and stories that can be easily understood and acted upon.
