I am passionate about building conservation as a force for justice. Acknowledging conservation’s colonial, capitalistic, and oppressive roots, I want to help envision and enact new conservation policy futures which support resurgent relationships to land. I currently work a Legislative Assistant with Earthjustice supporting the the Lands, Wildlife & Oceans and Climate & Energy teams. When not on Capitol Hill, I am usually spending time with my partner Jessica (also a DDCSP alum) backpacking, reading, or tending to our garden.
