She previously interned for Austin Youth River Watch, where she performed on-the-ground site assessments and researched Austin parks to help inform future environmental restoration projects. She has been drawn to the outdoors and been curious about the world around her ever since she was a kid, whether it be gazing in awe at the Dallas skyline when activities brought her and her family to the city, or spending blissful afternoons in her backyard pool and riding her bike around the neighborhood with friends. Her studies and work experience thus far have instilled a deep appreciation and passion for preserving the natural landscape and the livelihood of all who depend upon it. She is an avid music lover and Texas country music fan. In her free time, she loves to journal, do yoga, take walks, and spend time exploring new places whether traveling near or far. She is thrilled to work for an organization where her passion for her home state of Texas and the natural environment can be put into conjoined action.
