Co-Founder & Author of Green Philly Blog
I’ve always loved the environment – from when I learned about the three “R’s” in elementary school to today, trying to figure out if my toothbrush was produced in a sustainable fashion. Obviously my favorite color is green (although pink is a close second favorite). While I know I can’t change the entire world on my own, I believe I can help others to start taking small actions. Although I have a reputation as a tree-hugging hippie, I acknowledge many challenges and circumstances that make it impossible to be perfectly green – and point them out on this blog. But I do believe that if we all take small steps in the right direction – together we can make a huge impact in nature and our lives.
I’m an advocate for the environment. I’m reading, watching and learning about Philly and global green news (but like to read some trashy novels in between). I graduated from Penn State (We Are!) with a Poli Sci degree, so I love to stay on top of legislation and political BS.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling (Don’t worry, I offset my carbon footprint), being outdoors (from biking Philly streets, to skiing, kickball or softball), and exploring Philadelphia from everything possible including Phillies games, live music and parks. And I couldn’t be living the dream without my fabulous family, friends & orange tabby cat.
