Hi, I’m Kelsea! I received a BSE in Chemical Engineering and a minor in Environmental Science from Princeton University.
I worked at ExxonMobil in the Global Sustainable Procurement Team developing a supply chain environmental performance program. For the first time, the program incorporated environmental considerations into ExxonMobil’s purchasing decisions and improve efficiency in the supply chain.
I also developed ExxonMobil’s employee engagement and education program to harness and foster passion for sustainability.
I am passionate about the environment, human rights, and sustainable development in today’s global world and am excited to be a founding member of the Uplift team.
I am also currently pursuing a PhD in Environmental Science at Vanderbilt University, focused on coupled human-natural systems and the impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities in Bangladesh.
