I am the urban partnerships director for The Nature Conservancy’s Puget Sound program. I am responsible for advancing new regional strategies to address stormwater pollution and expand the use of green infrastructure in Puget Sound cities and towns by working with communities, nonprofit organizations, governments, utilities and the corporate sector.
Through my work, I seek to advance the science, policies and practices necessary to bring more nature into cities in ways that clean water and air and support thriving communities. I am particularly excited about continuing to explore the many ways in which nature near where we are living and work impacts our wellbeing as humans. As a conservationist who loves living in a city, I’m passionate about advancing conservation in urban areas.
