Sarah graduated from the university this spring with a Masters degree in Urban and Regional Planning. While in school, she has been busy at EGI working on the Palisades research project, which is supporting southwest Michigan as the community prepares for a nuclear plant closure. Sarah enjoyed interviewing community members about potential impacts. She has been working to combine technical details and personal conversations into an accessible report for the entire community.
Before coming to Michigan, Sarah studied Sustainability Science at Furman University. She previously worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA in the metro-Atlanta area to build the capacity of community gardens within food deserts. Her longer term interests include community engagement and assisting cities with climate change.
When not busy with school or work, she enjoys painting, hiking, and traveling with her family in Georgia and up north Michigan.
