So, in 2020, I cofounded the Pacific Northwest Forest Climate Alliance, and in October 2021, I migrated from public lands law to climate justice organizing, as 350PDX’s new forest climate manager. I also still live at Tryon Life Community Farm, tucked into Tryon Creek State Park, so if you’re walking through the forest, come over and say hi to me and my goats!”
