Noelle was inspired to become an environmentalist after growing up in dynamic climate regions throughout North America in the plains, mountains, beaches, and wetlands. They’ve experienced tornadoes, hurricanes, and wildfires, oh my! All of which impressed the need for joining the fight against anthropogenic climate change. Noelle studied at Wellesley College and has a passion for global food systems with a specific love for environmental justice & animal welfare. She has traveled globally and worked with various nonprofits on environmental projects including water security, green buildings, environmental education, circular economies, sustainability, and policy. They believe that, together, we can make systemic change via experiential learning and uniting like interests for our shared future on this planet. In their free time, Noelle enjoys sustainable shopping & upcycling, exploring CA with her two dogs, and playing/listening to music.
