Quote: "My decision to pursue an environmental career came when I realized that “International Development” had to be done at the intersection of the environment. After spending a number of years outside the U.S., I realized that many of the impacts of climate change were unfairly burdening communities who were not responsible for causing climate change. I decided to return to the U.S. to work to change policies so that we could lower our greenhouse gas emissions. I have spent the past year and a half as a Policy Analyst at Solar San Antonio working to make San Antonio a leader in clean energy. My interests include clean energy, sustainable food systems, and urban planning."
