Angela joined the Sustainable Lafayette Board of Directors in 2020 and has been a volunteer since 2015. Her degree is in social work and she practiced for 12 years in that field before having children. Starting a family highlighted theimportance of environmental awareness and eco friendly practices.
Since moving to Lafayette in 2014, her focus has been volunteering at Lafayette Elementary School and in various ways with SL. She served as an LES PTA Board Member as the Campus Environment Chair. In 2016 when a class of 3rd graders was granted Sustainable Lafayette’s first Leaf Award, she coordinated with faculty to establish a parent run garden for students at Lafayette Elementary School. Much of the last three years has been focusing on co- chairing and teaching students in the LES Leopard Garden. For 4 years she also led the school’s student Green Team program aiming to foster student interest in environmental practices by coordinating: shoe recycling drives, campus waste audits, student tours of our community’s recycling facilities, campus clean up days and Earth Week activities. She also contributed to the Lafayette Unified School District Wellness Committee for two years exploring ways to sustain the emotional, physical, and academic health of the students and families of our public school district.
She finds the most enjoyment in knitting our community's experience by sharing and developing sustainable initiatives with others, and can also be found experimenting in her home garden with her children and advising for the LES garden.
