Originally from Chippewa Falls, I am now in my senior year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
I have always been an advocate for the environment. By studying journalism and environmental studies, I hope to tell stories about the challenges our natural places face today – and the solutions for tomorrow. I believe it is more important than ever to give a voice to our natural resources and to empower those who strive to protect them. That is why I am thrilled to be an intern at Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters. After graduation, I hope to continue to tell stories as an environmental reporter and filmmaker.
Growing up in central Wisconsin, I enjoyed camping at Devil’s Lake, mountain biking near Minocqua, and kayaking down the Namekagon River. These natural places have helped me understand the deep connection between people and the environment. It is crucial to understand the threats these places face, and how we can be better stewards of Wisconsin’s – and Earth’s – natural resources.
I’m a conservation voter because: Everyone has the right to drink clean water and breathe fresh air. I want to ensure that everyone has a connection with their environment and a role in protecting it.
