Today she does triathlons, holds several volunteer roles and manages an evolving role working on sustainability strategy for a multinational corporation.

ALUMNI OFFICE HOURS, A Leadership Series Event
Hosted on ENV Connect, powered by Ten Thousand Coffees
The Leadership Series was created in 2016 to provide Faculty of Environment students an opportunity to connect with, and learn from, a broad range of faculty alumni through themed discussions and small-group networking. Building on its success, Alumni Office Hours was launched in winter 2021 to facilitate bi-monthly online events hosted by alumni on a variety of career-related topics. The series gives students a chance to connect with alumni in a smaller, more comfortable setting to learn about career paths, broaden their perspectives and hone desirable career skills.
