As an operations generalist, I enjoy wearing multiple hats and acting as an interface between program staff and support teams. I am happy to be supporting a team of professionals that are dedicated to increasing sustainability and helping companies and organizations to improve their practices. Building and applying robust internal systems and processes that follow the same guiding principles is a rewarding way to work towards our shared vision, a world where human choices ensure a sustainable future.
