"I work for the Sustainability Office because I love this planet and want to see it happy and healthy! Bikes are also by far the best method of transportation, and I hope to inspire the Skidmore community to choose them over cars whenever they can. Beyond being environmentally friendly, bikes are FUN and I want everyone on campus to be able to appreciate the joy of a bike ride!"

Peace, love and bike grease

"The Sustainability Office is one of my favorite things about Skidmore, and I am so happy to work here! I am a passionate environmentalist, and try to allow that ethic to pervade my daily decisions and (hopefully) lead to a future career in environmental writing or activism.  I love spending time outdoors - particularly hiking and enjoying the forests of New Hampshire and the Adirondacks - and hope to educate others about the importance of natural spaces.  I believe environmental problems are the largest issue we as individuals and a planet face, and working as an S-Rep allows me to take action and make a difference on my own campus."
