Collaboration and making friends from around the world excites me!
As an environmental and sustainability professional, I have worked in not-for-profit, consulting, and corporate environments, on-site and freelance/remote. I have lived and worked in 3 countries: India, USA, and Canada. To be able to help people and keep our environment healthy is what drives me. In my work, I have liaised with internal and external stakeholders on improvement areas, collaborated on environmental stewardship and resolved sustainability issues and concerns. I believe in a systems wide approach that helps connect various parts of a business. On a scale from 1-10, I’m 12 when it comes to being organized, something that has helped me tremendously in environmental compliance. Love to work with data that unravels perspectives to enhance environmental performance. I find creative ways to engage people through communication, reporting, hands on activities, or blogs.
Currently a member of:
