Lucy or Luz (she/her/hers) manages community weaving and curriculum design for Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program Alumni Network, including in-person gatherings and online leadership development. Common threads that have run throughout Lucy’s career are relationship-building, curriculum design, and resource sharing. Prior to joining ELP, Lucy coordinated grants, outdoor education programs, and special events for the REI Co-op’s Mid-Atlantic Market and Houston Market. Lucy is grateful to serve as Board President for Groundswell Community Project, a Natural Leader and Fresh Tracks Trainer for Children & Nature Network, and a council member for National Parks Conservation Association’s Next Generation Advisory Council. Luz grew up surrounded by mesquite trees, nopal, and roadrunners on the lands and waters of the Tonkawa peoples (San Antonio, TX). In her spare time, you can find Lucy repeatedly falling off and climbing back on her surfboard in her new home on the lands and waters of the Kumeyaay people (San Diego, CA) or getting her hands dirty as a worker at Pixca, a POC cooperative farm.
