I had no idea what I wanted to do growing up and still didn’t know when I got out of law school and started working at the Justice Department, but I found myself preparing a series of friend of the court briefs for environmental groups on water issues, and I became enamored with the water work (“like a duck to water” comes to mind). Anyway, I’ve never turned back.
- Roots in:
- Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. I grew up living right next door to the South River, which we played in all the time. Our house also got flooded every time we had a bad storm.
- Favorite place:
- Mountains – Appalachians, Rockies, Alps – I Iove every mountain I’ve ever been to.
- Why "environmentalism" matters:
- Because I love my children more than anything and environmentalism protects the world they will inherit from me.
