I am a graduate student working on my master’s in Communication and Leadership.   Sustainability is important to me because I want to ensure that future generations are able to have all of the resources they need.  Some of my interests include protecting the threatened bull trout of the Northwest and bringing fun reusable bags to the grocery store.

I am a senior English major (writing concentration), and Political Science minor. I am passionate about the outdoors and sustainable practices with an eye towards preserving our environment. I want to be able to encourage people to not take for granted what the natural world has to offer, and educate them on how best to live symbiotically with our environment.

I am a Junior at Gonzaga working towards a double major in journalism and psychology with a minor in philosophy. Growing up in Montana my love of the outdoors has almost been ingrained in my biology, and from a young age I've spent a lot of my time mountain biking, hiking, swimming, and river rafting. Protecting and preserving the environment we have is one of the most important missions we have as inhabitants of this Earth, and through the work of the Sustainability Department, we can move closer to greener solutions that protect what we hold so dearly.

I am a currently a junior at Gonzaga University, pursuing a double major in Sociology and Environmental Studies. My biggest passion in life is adventuring outdoors, so any I try and take advantage of any opportunity to help preserve those wild places for the future! I am most looking forward to my experience abroad in Peru, where I hope to learn how other countries in areas of extreme biodiversity are approaching sustainability and the environmental movement.

I am currently an undeclared freshman, but I’m considering fields in Environmental Studies and Biology. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer and going on hikes. I have no idea what the future holds for me, but I hope that I can work to help sustain the environment either by conservation efforts or more sustainable work.
