What am I doing right now?
During COVID-19, I am enjoying the company of my mother, sister, and chihuahua in Portland, OR.
I particularly enjoy my dog checking in to make sure I am taking breaks. So far, I have a sneaking suspicion that he only does it to get pets, treats, and walks. Plus, I recently found out he loves to snuggle stuffed animals as I work, which I find to be absolutely adorable!
Even though times are scary, I am fortunate to be a virtual policy intern at Forth!
Currently, I am assisting in the creation of the first cohort for our Community of Practice. Our goal is to create coalitions that will pursue shared policy objectives in equitable transportation electrification.
