My role at Verdis, in one sentence: I help clients understand their environmental footprint, with a focus on greenhouse gases and supporting clients on their path to decarbonization.

The best advice I’ve ever received: “Every person that won the lottery played at least once.” Not to say that we should all get lottery tickets, but if we want a win, we have to try. We don’t always get what we want and it sometimes takes many disappointments, but at least by giving it a shot, we have a chance to get it. It’s proven true in both my personal and professional life.

My favorite days always include: Spending time in nature. There is nothing more grounding to me.

My favorite memory at Verdis: The first day of our annual retreat last summer. It was just such a great moment to get all those great brains in the same room and see the energy and passion flowing! It’s always helpful to take a step back from day-to-day work and look at the big picture.
