What brought you to Crag? I spent my summers growing up visiting the central coast of California and Monterey Bay Aquarium. I fell in love with the Pacific. I was drawn to Crag because of their environmental practice in the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, Crag’s public interest and civic engagement mission for protecting the Pacific Northwest mirrors my own advocacy goals.
What are your environmental/legal interests? Water resources, water quality, and coastal law.
Favorite place in the PNW: The ENTIRE city of Portland. Olympic National Park coast. But, I’m still new to this area so I’m sure more favorites will grow!
Favorite book: Too hard but I can narrow it by my favorite authors – Margaret Atwood, Agatha Christie, and of course J.K. Rowling!
Favorite quote: “I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” – E.B. White
