What’s a Place You Love in the Midwest?

The Upper Peninsula in Michigan is so beautiful, especially the landscape along Lake Superior. Some of my favorite hikes have been the waterfalls and Presque Isle Park there, as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes.

What Drives You to Do This Work?

Climate change and pollution are perhaps the greatest threats to humanity, and the Midwest is a particularly important region because of the Great Lakes. I hope to use my background and passion to help protect this critical environment for generations to come.
