Originally from Berwyn, PA, I studied International Relations at Brown University and currently live in Boston, MA where I work at CivicSolar, a solar energy design and distribution company. As an Account Manager my main responsibilities include supporting installers and developers across the country design solar photovoltaic systems, and supplying and distributing equipment for residential and commercial solar projects. Many of my co-workers and I have recently participated in several solar lobby days at the Statehouse to advocate for pro-solar legislation on behalf of a diverse coalition of solar advocates and those employed by the solar industry in the state of Massachusetts. I am very excited to continue advocating for policies that benefit the greater good of the people, environment, and economy of Massachusetts through USGBC’s Advocacy committee!
I’ve been interested in sustainability for most of my life, especially how it relates to the built environment, because climate change is, arguably, the single most pressing issue our society faces today. The challenge of sustainability requires us to not only think differently about our world, but to come up with innovative solutions to make it better for future generations to come. I hope that by joining and becoming a member of USGBC I’m able to do my small part to help make Massachusetts a leader in sustainability.
