What key words best describe your hope for the future?

Climate and water

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

I’m a local water attorney working with public agencies throughout the state to manage water sustainably and to account for climate change’s impact on California’s water resources. I’m also passionate about water conservation and new developments in this field, such as onsite gray water systems and rainwater capture systems. I’d fascinated by the connection between water and energy.

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

I would love to learn more from other attendees about how climate change is impacting them, their organizations or their clients.

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

In January 2017, I co-convened a historic meeting of 100 of California’s top female water leaders in Santa Barbara. This first-ever California H2O Women Conference brought together prominent professional women representing all sectors of the industry to discuss California’s water supply, including the future of imported water, the duty to invest in water infrastructure for future generations, implementation of sustainable groundwater management, and the role of communication in advancing water policy. I would love to invite other women to join this group and also to personally support local non-profits working on climate change and water conservation issues.
