Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.

Unite to Light manufactures and distributes durable, efficient, solar powered lights to those without access to electricity. Benefits include 30% increase in graduation rates, decreased indoor air pollution, avoided greenhouse gas emissions, greater productivity and safety, and significant cost savings when compared to traditional fuel sources such as kerosene and candles.

How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?

We are always looking for partners to identify needs for lights, as well as provide lights to those in need. In addition, we are looking to learn more about impactful aid and development and how we might be more effective.

What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?

In addition to my work and experience with Unite to Light, I have experience in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and water policy.
