Forest ecologist. Community-builder. Dreamer.
Rhiannon is a lifelong environmentalist with a passion for bringing people together. She and her family moved to Vancouver from the US in 2017 and immediately fell in love with the region. She is deeply involved in local organizing on issues of climate, housing, cycling and safe streets, and municipal politics.
She holds a master’s degree in forest and environmental science from the University of Washington. She’s worked on environmental issues from multiple angles, having spent time in the environmental consulting industry, the US Forest Service, and the nonprofit world, and is excited to bring these diverse perspectives to fighting to protect Átl’ḵa7tsem / Howe Sound.
In her spare time, Rhiannon loves hiking, trail-running, curling up with a book and a cat, playing board games with her family, and watching live-streamed city council meetings. In previous lifetimes, she’s also been a long-distance hiker, a climber, and a mediocre banjo player.
