She has focused her studies on environmental conservation and public service and is an excellent systems thinker. When she looks at the work ahead and systems change, she “recognizes the connections between all aspects of life, [...and] questions what links them all together?” Her conclusion is, “We are the piece of the puzzle with the ability to link anything together and with the capacity to appreciate our value and power in this beautiful and diverse world we can call home.”
