Environmental Policy Advocate

Natalie is a dedicated environmental policy advocate hailing from Sacramento. With dual degrees in History (B.A.) and a self-designed B.S. in Environmental Policy & Planning, Natalie’s academic work centered on the intersection of people, the environment, and social justice. During her undergraduate years at UCLA, Natalie fostered an interest and expertise in environmental governance, completing intensive individual research on critical issues like the Colorado River crisis and the inequities at play in the construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct.
