Natalie is currently pursuing a Master of Public Policy (MPP) at the University of Connecticut. Previously, she graduated from UConn with a BS in Environmental Sciences and Human Rights with minors in Public Policy and Sustainable Food Crop Production. During her undergraduate career, she was engaged with a variety of educational, research and policy initiatives focused on environmental and climate justice. She was also an Officer of the student group Revolution Against Rape. In her free time, Natalie enjoys volunteering in gardens, poking around in vernal pools and playing the violin. This summer, Natalie is working with Goodwill of Northern New England to help plan, develop and form a system to consistently and authentically gather feedback from their employees regarding diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). She looks forward to gaining an understanding of the complexities of developing and implementing new DEI models across a multi-state organization.
