2008 Post Graduation Intern
at the New Mexico Environmental Law Center
"My summer at the Law Center was spent gathering data centered on natural resources and the environment. This included compiling geospatial locations of New Mexico’s extractive resources as well as government agencies and corporations which have jurisdiction over these resources. Sifting through various records, I organized a comprehensive database for New Mexicans to inform themselves about the environmental and industrial activity that affects their daily lives, communities and cultures."
