The Fellowship and extended Loeb and Lincoln Institute of Land Policy networks have opened up professional and personal connections that may not have otherwise happened, or would have taken much longer to establish. The Fellowship gave me insight to help reshape my career and see what impact I wanted the next stage of my career to take; though I have a feeling this search will continue throughout the rest of my career.
Recent and ongoing projects include:
• Strategic planning with coastal communities on disaster recovery and climate change adaptation;
• Developing the first business incubator and education center for renewable river energy in the United States;
• Shaping coastal restoration policy on both urban/metropolitan and statewide planning levels nationally and internationally.
