Jeanne graduated from Vassar College with a BA in Urban Studies in May 2008. A docent position at the National Building Museum's Green Communities exhibition in Washington, D.C. opened her eyes to a career in sustainability. She went on to work at the Green Building Certification Institute and the U.S. Green Building Council, helping diverse project teams implement the LEED rating system on their building and neighborhood projects. She is now a Sustainability Manager at Jones Lang LaSalle, while completing her MBA at the Foster School of Business.
ESC Representative, Committee Chair
ASUW Representative, Committee Vice Chair
I am excited to join the CSF Committee this year as ASUW Senate Liaison. This will be my first year with CSF, but not my first involved with sustainability on UW’s campus – I also work with EcoReps and Green Husky Coalition, and served as Lander Hall Council’s SEED Liaison my freshman year. As a long-time Seattleite, I grew up swimming in Lake Washington, exploring the Puget Sound’s rocky beaches, and hiking the Cascade Mountains. Environmental protection is therefore an issue close to my heart and I look forward to supporting more inventive student-led sustainability efforts this year with CSF!
Michael is a PhD student in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences studying how clouds affect and are affected by global environment changes. His academic work is primarily focused on the science behind these environmental challenges, rather than what to do about them, so his participation on the Campus Sustainability Fund Committee is important to him as an opportunity to look at promising solutions and play a role in implementing them on campus.
Kym is a classic city-kid-turned-nature-nerd with experience in community-based ecological restoration, trail design, environmental education, volunteer management and non-profit strategic planning. Having worked most recently as a project manager with EarthCorps, a Seattle-based environmental non-profit, she moved on to pursue a master's degree in Urban Planning from UW beginning Fall 2018 seeking opportunities to work at the intersection of ecosystem health, environmental justice, and urban design. She is passionate about grassroots, ground-up grantmaking programs that, like the CSF, empower communities to make the changes they deem necessary to improve various aspects of sustainability in their lives and on our campus. She is an Environmental Leadership Program Senior Fellow and in the past has served as a grant proposal reviewer for the Puget Sound Partnership and New England Grassroots Environmental Fund. As time allows, she's typically found wandering pacific northwest mountains and forests looking at plants and birds, exploring Seattle's music scene, and trying to avoid social media while still engaging in social activism.
I'm excited to be a part of the CSF committee because it is dedicated to improving sustainability and environmental awareness - two things that have always been important to me. I've always enjoyed working with the environment, and this experience will provide a much different perspective.
Student Advisory Board (OMAD) Representative
I'm the second of 3 girls. Fun fact there are about 15 years between my little sister and I. I love to dance (hip-hop) and currently work 2 jobs. I was born in Accra, Ghana but have lived in the states for nearly 13 years. I came to be on the CSF committee through my involvement on the Student Advisory board when I was the student liaison to the Black Student Commission. My involvement with Student Senate, ASUW, and my time as an active member for a CSF funded conference, AFRICANOW all accumulated into the position that I serve on. I am very excited to expand the range in which I can support not only people in my community but build intersectional bridges across a diverse group of other peoples and communities!
Hi, my name is Resego and I’m a senior at the University of Washington studying Public Health with a minor in Law, Societies, & Justice. Outside of school and work, I enjoy playing golf, basketball, piano, hiking, and trying new food. The path that brought me to CSF was through a friend and actually former CSF committee chair, Espen Scheuer. We often discussed sustainability and the ambiguity of it from different viewpoints, and it made me realize that I really wanted to learn more about the various ways that I could communicate and contribute to the conversation around sustainability from different angles to reach audiences of all backgrounds and levels of understanding. I’m excited to take part in creating a more sustainable campus and inspiring others to do the same!
