Cool States Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Washington, DC
“At USGBC I had the opportunity to take on a substantive project. I spent the summer doing state policy research, with the ultimate goal of creating a guide to help state officials implement green building incentives, legislation, etc. It was amazing to be trusted and tasked with a productive project, instead of being used for daily, menial tasks.”
