I am a senior at Bryant University pursuing a major in environmental science with a minor in business management. My passion and eco-mission focuses upon sustainable innovation and integration of sustainbiality initiatives into business strategies, organizations and communities. By analyzing pre-existing infrastructure the question arises how is it possible to use innovation to make existing processes and infrastructure sustainable? Bringing together as many stakeholders as possible can help answer the previous question. Bringing together different perspectives allows for increased stakeholder involvement leading to more effective and accurate decision making. A large portion of the Campus Ecology Fellowship from the National Wildlife Federation has been providing an avenue and channel for communication to enact positive change at Bryant University. As part of my Eco-Mission, I envision intensified global stakeholder involvement when analyzing the practicalities and feasibility of future sustainability initiatives.
My Fun Side

One of my eco-guilty pleasures is:
taking long showers.
If I were an animal, I would be:
My favorite wild place is:
My favorite way to get outdoors is:

On a More Serious Note
I am driven to make a difference in the world because:
the world needs more incorporation of sustainability into its organizations and communities. Sustainability needs to become a priority, not an after thought. The Earth works as a system, meaning that all parts of the system are interconnected. If one part of the system is not sustainable than the entire system becomes unsustainable. I hope to make a difference by analyzing the potential for integration of renewable energy technologies into communities.
The greatest skill I bring to a team is:
my passion, dedication and willingness to try things that I have not done before. Learning comes from trying new things and understanding what works and what does not work. By believing in and using this perspective, I am able to understand how to overcome setbacks and hurdles thrown in my way.
My proudest moment working on community projects was:
engaging multiple stakeholders and hearing positive enthusiasm and fervor for this project.
If I could change one thing about my community it would be:
to encourage a culture of sustainability and innovation.
