UNE Experience

"During summers…the career paths I explored varied, from teaching environmental education at facilities in Connecticut and Florida, to shifting towards the field of alternative energy. I completed a virtual internship… with the Foundation for Geothermal Innovation working to advance an incentive prize program for technology solutions in geothermal energy. Following this, I interned at the Ocean Energy Institute on the shores of Rockland, Maine, comparing the true costs of conventional and alternative energy generation methods.

"I participated in a travel course titled ‘Environment, Health, and Community Development’ with Professor Rick Peterson. The course wrapped up with a three-week travel lab component to Kenya, Africa, which was a life-changing experience I will never forget.

"I am currently living in Washington, DC working at the Worldwatch Institute. I started as a research intern within the Climate and Energy program and have since been hired in the Development department, where I develop project concept notes and explore funding prospects for all program areas of the Institute."
