Updating our Staff Roster: we have a new full-time intern at USGBC MA.
Jen Cole will be assisting our team with communications, grant development, and event logistics. She comes to us from having participated in the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center's College Intern Program, and we are really excited to have her on board. She recently finished her 3rd year at Emerson College where she was awarded the Sustainability Advancement Award for her work as the Living Green Resident Assistant and Producer of the annual Green Gala show bringing together environmental awareness and the arts. She has a passion for sustainability and great energy for her work.
My name is Jen Cole, my role at USGBC MA Chapter is a communications and technical associate. I’m looking forward to working closely with everyone in the green building community.
My primary focus will be working on co-managing logistics for small and large events, grant writing, evolving communication, and program operations. I am on track to obtain a B.S. in Communication Studies with dual minors in Environmental and Non-profit Studies, from Emerson College.
I was born in Connecticut and was brought up in a small town called Colchester. I was inspired both by my parents and the vast amount of nature around me growing up to protect the earth and work for a better more sustainable future.
In the past, I had the opportunity to work with the Emerson College Sustainability Committee. My work included advocacy, outreach and event planning. I have just started my path in the non-profit world and hope to take on leadership roles as I move forward. I could not be happier to be here making a difference through improving the built environment of Boston and Massachusetts.
I am thrilled to meet and work with everyone, on the USGBC MA mission.
