Welcome, Marie!

 

The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) and our partner, the Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships (RSDP) at University of Minnesota Extension, are delighted to welcome Marie Donahue to our team as our new Sustainability Storyteller. 

Marie will develop stories that highlight the champions and projects inspiring sustainability and clean energy action across Minnesota, and support a variety of RSDP and CERTs communications efforts.

 

By pursuing a career in the environmental field, I have been honored to work alongside so many passionate people committed to taking action to build a more just and sustainable future. I can't wait to share stories of local
communities across the state helping to build this future!
