Environment, MS 2014
Climate and Buildings Program Manager 
City of Boston Environment Department

Milano and the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management (EPSM) program helped to give me the skills to push for impactful change in the organizations I have worked for. Other Milano students and myself helped to win The New School to divesting its endowment from fossil fuels, making it the largest university to do so at the time. Post-Milano I have worked for City sustainability and environmental departments in New York, Oakland, and Boston. In Boston I have helped to push for new cutting-edge policy and program work around net zero carbon new and existing buildings. This I see as the future for the field.
