Personal Summary

This part of the job hunt is always the most difficult, what is the best way to describe my work experience and passion for environmental management. I enjoy learning and I want to solve problems. Those problems could rang from developing a waste and recycling plan for a community, working to help farmers and ranchers move to regenerative agricultural practices, or analyzing policies to ensure that organizations are investing their time and money in the best solution. I have previous work experience with cross-functional roles as well as coursework that was focused on environmental law and policy. My experience with marketing and sales operations has allowed me to successfully work with key stakeholders to identify and solve problems and give executive level presentations. I have reviewed and analyzed US and international environmental policies through my coursework at DU, as well as researched the economic impact of environmental policies.

I would love the opportunity to help solve whatever problem you are working on!
