Alie graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.A. in Environmental Studies. Beyond her academics, her experience as an employee at a small environmental non-profit, in Champlain College’s sustainability office and for an environmental consulting firm in Boston, have allowed her to work with people and organizations dedicated to creating sustainable communities. She strongly believes in the value and power of community-based learning and is excited to assist in providing opportunities for SLU students to have similar experiences through the Sustainability Semester and the Center for Civic Engagement. In her free time Alie can be found cooking, crafting or enjoying the outdoors.
