Born and raised in Montana, I have seen the quality of our unique landscape compromised by natural resource extraction and non-renewable energy production. In the last year, I have found a life-long calling to work for climate change mitigation and adaptation. I study sustainable food and agriculture at the University of Montana, as well as being enrolled in the climate change studies minor. My organizational affiliations include University of Montana Climate Action Now (UM CAN) and 1000 New Gardens. I look forward to mobilizing Montanans to march for comprehensive state and national energy conservation and climate change policy. Join me on May 8th!
