Personal pronouns: She, her, hers

I am currently working at American Rivers to advance the Clean Water Supply program in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, with a particular focus on the Delaware River and Susquehanna River basins. I work closely with partner organizations and municipalities to advance clean water policies and practices, with a focus on urban stormwater and natural infrastructure. I collaborate with partners, coordinate with local, state, regional and national leaders, and engage with communities to ensure healthy rivers for all. Before starting this role, I worked at Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area (NHA), creating the organization’s education department to bring watershed awareness and experiential opportunities to communities along the Schuylkill River. I developed environmental education programs for K-12 students, career development programs for high school and college students, an NHA Junior Ranger program, community summer camps, and numerous youth and family recreation opportunities along the River and Schuylkill River Trail.
