I am passionate about using conservation as a force for justice. Acknowledging conservation’s colonial, capitalistic, and oppressive roots, I want to build and support new conservation policy futures which support resurgent relationships to land. I currently intern in Congress and hope to work in government or environmental advocacy organizations in the near future. Long-term, I want to rekindle my own connection to land by living in the western United States and growing much of my own food and livestock while advocating for conservation justice.
