Environmental Economics
is a sophomore Environmental Economics major from Marin County, California. In addition to coursework in sustainability and economics, she enjoys classes such as Education in the USA and Foundations in GSFS, in what she considers a dynamic combination of microeconomic decision-making and macroeconomic systems of wealth mixed with intersectionality, environmental justice and marginalization. During a year off between high school and college she worked at a salad-sandwich shop and managed a marketing campaign for a tiny house company, as well as explored the non-profit sector, traveling to Port-Au-Prince to deliver sustainable school supplies and later interning at a non-profit coordinating partnerships with B-Corps and other companies and finding new sources of human and financial capital.

On campus she’s involved in the Student Government Association, this fall in particular focusing on support for MiddIncluded, creating more transparency in financial aid, and bringing JusTalks to professors. As an avid cyclist and co-founder of the Casual Cycling Club, she’s initiating a free road bike loan program to make cycling more accessible, and successfully installed Middlebury’s first Dero Bike Fix-It Station with funding from the Environmental Council. Driven by climate change and inequity,  she enjoys starting earnest conversations to solve problems from all sides while being open to new and different solutions.

After taking a semester off for medical reasons, Tiffany spent the summer traveling with family and friends.
