The SJPS program taught me that change is possible. It also taught me that we need to use whatever privileges we've been granted in our life to promote that change.

Current Career

Organization: London Environmental Network

Title: Network Coordinator


Career Overview

I work at the London Environmental Network, which is an environmental non-profit that works to build strong, resilient organizations so they can be more effective at creating positive environmental change over the long term.

My day to day tasks include running events, meeting with members, creating collaborative opportunities and sharing the environmental sector’s accomplishments with Londoners. I’m also responsible for creating access to shared resources, delivering training sessions, maintaining online portals (website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), as well as the daily operations and governance of the organization. I make the budget, hire staff, write grants and take out the recycling. I would say I do a little bit of everything.
