Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Landscapes
After finishing her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies at Northern Arizona University, Caroline first became interested in sustainable development during her time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador. She worked with dairy farmers and conservationists in efforts to reduce deforestation and increase milk output for farmers. From these experiences, she went on to complete a dual Master’s degree from American University in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development and International Affairs. She then joined the Energy Resources Center in October to support efforts in the Rights-of-Way as Habitat Working Group and with other stakeholders on land conservation and pollinator habitat recovery by increasing common knowledge of pollinator habitat loss and creating tools and resources to better serve habitat conservation on working landscapes.
