Volunteer Profile: Emily Provonsha
Emily joined Smart Growth Vermont in June and is working on updating the section of our website, Connect to the Land: A Guide for Taking Action. She has also written some articles for our monthly e-newsletter and our blog, in addition to distributing our bi-annual newsletter to businesses around the state.
Emily attends Green Mountain College, majoring in Environmental Studies and Philosophy. She is also enrolled in the Pre-Law Program and plans to pursue a Law degree upon graduating. Her interest in the environmental field is due in part to her participation in an environmental field studies program abroad and in small-scale community initiatives for smart growth back in Ohio.
Emily has worked with non-profit organizations to create community gardens, promote the Buy Local initiative, alleviate hunger, and to raise funds for craftsmen in third world countries. She hopes to build a career in sustainable community development and land preservation. Thanks for all of your hard work, Emily!
