Hi! I'm Kaisa!
I live in Eugene, OR with my best friend who also happens to be my wife! Lucky us! We are currently working at a local nonprofit and attending grad school. When we can find time, we love traveling and having adventures of all kinds! We aspire to adopt both children and a dog someday. Right now we are trying to learn more about what to grow in our garden in this west coast climate!
I am a socially and environmentally conscious youth developer. I care about the intersections between environmental and social issues and see looping young people into action as a key element to social and environmental change. Through positive youth development and barrier addressing services, youth will be armed with tools and skills needed to achieve their dreams and make a positive impact in their communities.
