WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
I work for a large, multinational corporation, so the scope of my work is international. In that sphere, I see how organizations like WWF get a seat at the table when high-level conversations involving world leaders and decision-makers are taking place. I just love the respect that WWF receives and appreciate that you can really see the impacts of WWF’s work.
Growing up, I envisioned working in the field of environmental science. While my professional career eventually went in a different direction, my personal passion still lies with conservation. So I find ways to get involved in my free time, and I sought out WWF because of that. In my time as a WWF Partner in Conservation, I’ve participated in the Climate March, attended speaking events, and joined WWF’s annual Partner Symposium. I’ve made close friends through WWF. Ultimately, I really enjoy being a part of the WWF community; it has exceeded my expectations.
I’ve been involved in quite a few conservation issues locally. I’m on the board of Anacostia Riverkeeper, an organization advocating for a cleaner and safer Anacostia River. And just this past year, I was certified as a master naturalist in the flora and fauna of Maryland through the Anacostia Watershed Society. I also worked with a local team to get a more stringent ban on rhino horn in Washington, DC. Local advocates can really make a big difference. I think when people see you taking action and trying to make the world a better place, it inspires them to do the same.
