M.S. Candidate, Water Sustainability and Climate Change
I served in the U.S. Coast Guard and retired a few years ago after a career as a CT Environmental Police Officer. I love being outdoor in nature, and enjoying outdoor activities, especially hiking, biking, skiing and running. I did a winter outdoor Semester with NOLS in the Southwest and saw how beautiful but fragile our public lands are, especially without proper stewardship. My Buddhist practice teaches me that all beings and phenomena exist or occur because of their relationship with other beings and phenomena. I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to learn about water resources and climate change, and hopefully help improve our planet’s ecological system for future generations.
