I grew up in Beloit and spent most of my childhood summers camping with my very large family. Whether it was fishing, swimming, or just running around outside with my cousins, we were always on the move. Spending so much time outside sparked my initial appreciation for nature.
Growing up as a multiracial kid in an increasingly polarizing political climate, I witnessed the effects of racial inequality and prejudice. I wanted to tackle environmental issues to protect the activities I loved, but also to defend my community – and I began this work in college.
During college, I studied abroad where I saw the effects climate change was having on subsistence farmers. Returning to campus, my focus shifted from a scientific perspective to a more human-centered approach. I joined F. H. King: Students for Sustainable Agriculture, a student-run agricultural collective, as the Administrative Director and declared my major in Community & Environmental Sociology. During my time with F.H. King, I found a passion for community building and engaged in climate justice work in and around campus.
After graduating in 2021, my journey led me to Wisconsin Conservation Voters. As the Operations Manager, I perform day-to-day operations that support our staff and enable the organization to thrive.

I enjoy baking, reading, celebrating birthdays, crocheting, sharing a meal with friends, and taking care of my plants!
I am a conservation voter because I believe healthy food, clean water, and a safe living space are human rights. In order to ensure access to these for future generations, we need to take immediate action.
