Rebecca’s passion for advancing community-scale environmental solutions has taken her to far-flung places, from rural Colorado to Asian mega-cities. Despite her global orientation, she remains drawn to the unique combination of mountains, coastline, and vibrant cultures that can be found here in the Pacific Northwest, where she was born and raised. Her eye for bridging research and decision-making led her to Earth Economics, where she supports local governments and communities to invest in environmental and social resilience through building access to economic knowledge and resources. Rebecca has worked on critical water resources and climate adaptation projects from Durango to Dhaka. She specializes in the development of usable tools and policy recommendations that she arrives at using a suite of mixed-method approaches, from focus groups to geospatial modeling. Before joining Earth Economics, she was a Princeton-in-Asia Fellow and a Fulbright Scholar.
