Brooke is a fourth year at the University of Virginia studying Global Environments + Sustainability and Environmental Science. She was a 2018 PGC Finalist, and has worked with TG in many capacities, most recently as the summer Intern Program Coordinator. Her passion for the environment began at a young age, spending every summer camping, hiking, and backpacking in National Parks across the country with her family. After she graduates, she wants to work in the environmental nonprofit sector, with a special focus on sustainable, equitable food systems. She is passionate about living a low waste, plant based lifestyle, and loves talking to her friends and family about ways to lower their footprint and live a lower impact lifestyle. In her free time, Brooke enjoys camping and backpacking, vegan baking, reading, and yoga.
