What brought you to Crag? A friend told me about the work that Crag does and I instantly knew this was a group I wanted to be a part of. The work that this team does isn’t just inspiring, it’s necessary. Being in nature is my medicine so I feel honored to have the opportunity to be a part of a group working to protect it.
What are your environmental interests/legal interests? I am very passionate about social justice. Someday I hope to fight for human rights and protect people’s civil liberties. Along the way, I will continue to advocate for environmental justice.
What will your work focus on while at Crag? I will be one of the development and communication interns. I am so excited to be a part of this team!
Favorite place to recreate or be in nature: Mount Hood is my favorite place in Oregon. As a little kid, I learned to ski at Meadows and fell in love with the sport. Now I spend my winters ski racing with my high school team and skinning throughout the backcountry. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than snow-covered trees!
Favorite book: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
