CEC with Speak for the Trees, Boston
Elizabeth grew up in the Philadelphia area, where she enjoyed having access to both the city and the local wilderness for exploring. After making the move to Worcester to attend Clark University, she fell in love with Massachusetts as a second home. She is a recent graduate with a double major in geography and biology, inspired by her love of terrestrial ecosystems and spatial analysis. Through a research fellowship (see picture), she discovered the field of urban forestry, the perfect combination of both the urban and forested spaces she grew up loving. As a Community Engagement Coordinator with Speak for the Trees, Boston, she hopes to expand her experience with urban forestry and help impart an appreciation and knowledge of trees to others. When not being a tree nerd, Elizabeth spends her time playing quidditch (the sport), crocheting, and doting on her cat named Tilia.
