Cole Jenson with the California Department of Conservation

I am a second year EPM student with a specialization in Food Systems and Sustainable Agriculture. I came to environmental and agricultural work by way of a bachelors in neuroscience and an early career in public health research. This winding path is a result of the critical importance of climate, ecological, and agricultural issues to the health and wellbeing of individuals and our communities. I hope to work in policy and program level work at the intersection of the health of our environment and of our communities, especially in rural places.
