I am first year Master in Public Policy candidate at HKS. Previously, I served in the New York City Mayor's Office of Sustainability, the C40 Climate Cities Leadership Group and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. In these roles I developed and implemented innovative climate change mitigation and adaptation policies. I am committed to working across sectors to improve the sustainability and livability of cities and ensure the realization of global climate commitments. I am originally from Boston and am enjoying being back in my home state of Massachusetts near friends, family, and Cape Cod. I strongly believe that participation in our food system creates and sustains healthier economies, environments, and residents, and that everyone should have access to these opportunities.
