We’re thrilled to welcome Peter Anderson as our new Virginia Campaign Coordinator, where he will work to oppose new fossil fuel investments and promote a clean energy economy in the state. This Virginia native earned his B.A. in philosophy at James Madison University and his J.D. at George Mason University. After graduating, he worked on climate change adaptation issues for Environmental Defense Fund and for the Society for Conservation Biology. Peter is also a member of the Virginia State Bar.
Katie Kienbaum joins the team as our newest AmeriCorps Project Conserve member. Katie grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Economics. We’re delighted to welcome her as our 2016-2017 AmeriCorps Energy Savings Outreach Associate where she will foster increased energy efficiency in North Carolina communities.
And we’re honored that Ridge Graham, who served as our 2015-2016 AmeriCorps Outreach Associate, chose to serve a second AmeriCorps term with Project Conserve and Appalachian Voices. He will focus on education and outreach regarding the environmental impacts of pollution — particularly coal ash — as our AmeriCorps Community Field Outreach Associate.
We also bid a fond farewell to former Tennessee Energy Savings Outreach Coordinator Amy Kelly and North Carolina Energy Savings Outreach Coordinator Amber Moodie-Dyer, both of whom have done incredible work with the organization and will be missed. We wish them luck on their new endeavors.
