What is your personal philosophy?

Wake up early and constantly stretch yourself.

What did you do before coming to Melink?

Before Melink, I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mexico. I worked as an Environmental Education Facilitator, and my main project was a sustainable schools initiative, installing solar panels, rain water capture systems, and creating a community waste reduction plan.

What is your favorite aspect of working at Melink?

My favorite aspect of working at Melink is the community, everyone has been extremely welcoming.

What do you like to do in your time off?

In my time off I like to go on hikes, photography (35mm), swimming, and playing water polo.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I swam across and back in the Ohio River in about 12 minutes.

What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the work I was doing in Mexico. Not only was I able to enjoy tacos every day, I felt like my work was important and that I made a difference in my community.  

What are your hopes for our industry?

My hope for our industry is that more cities, states, and individuals will take the pledge to use 100% renewables by 2050 (or Before.)

Motto or personal mantra?

Be a fountain not a drain.

Do you collect anything?

As a kid I started collecting pins from the ski resorts my family visited.
