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.
