Name: Kiersten Gilbert

School: Oregon State University, Degree: Environmental Science

Hometown: Hillsboro, Oregon

What brought you to Crag?: I just graduated from OSU with a degree in Environmental Science and I’ve been contemplating what’s next. I’ve come to the realization that I would like to study environmental law, and Crag seemed like the right fit to gain some experience.

What are your environmental/legal interests?: My environmental/legal interests are climate change and how its impacts affect marginalized communities. I hope to one day be an attorney that has the opportunity to work toward a more equitable future in the fight for environmental justice.

Favorite place to recreate or be in nature: My favorite place to hike is anywhere with a waterfall! But my favorite place in nature is the beach on a warm sunny day.

Favorite book: Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Favorite quote: Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all” ~Hellen Keller
