The EcoFellow Experience: Jorge Guarin

Hola! My name is Jorge Guarin, and I am an EcoFellow at the Center for EcoTechnology. Most of my time at CET has been focused on community outreach and education; however, I have had the chance to be involved in a variety of projects. I graduated from The State University of New York, College of Environmental Science (SUNY-ESF) and Forestry in May 2017. I majored in Sustainable Energy Management and during my time at SUNY-ESF I acquired some experience in materials management; hence, CET was a perfect fit to put my education into action.

The EcoFellow Experience: Willow Cohn

Hello! My name is Willow Cohn, and I am an EcoFellow at the Center for EcoTechnology. My primary role at CET focuses on Community Outreach and Education. In addition, I have had the opportunity to cross-train in many areas at CET including high performance building, food waste reduction, building science, and marketing.

I am a 2016 graduate of Siena Heights University, where I majored in Environmental Science with a minor in Biology. At Siena Heights I studied the science of the natural world and the connections that humans have to the environment. I have work experience in various sectors of the environmental field. I worked for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, The McDowell Environmental Center, and the Alaska Center for the Environment. I am passionate about the environmental field because I believe it holds a critical connection with many other fields and all aspects of life. As an environmentalist, my goal is to reduce human impact on the environment while being socially, culturally and ecologically just. I was attracted to CET because I felt my goals blended well with CET’s mission to promote technologies that have the least disruptive impact on the natural ecology of the Earth. I strongly believe in this mission and wanted to be part of an organization that was a pioneer in making instrumental change in the environment.

The EcoFellow Experience: Avery Cross

Hello! My name is Avery Cross, and I am an EcoFellow at the Center for EcoTechnology. Working primarily in Program Operations, my main role is to assist the waste-reduction and energy-efficiency programs that CET offers.  In addition, the EcoFellowship allows me to help with community outreach and education, marketing projects, and innovative projects throughout the organization.

I graduated from Bard College last spring with a degree in Environmental and Urban Studies. I appreciated my program’s interdisciplinary approach to understanding the environment and I was immediately drawn to CET’s similar approach to working toward sustainability, always considering the social, scientific, and economic dimensions of environmental issues and their solutions. Previously, I worked for the sustainability office at my college, and I have worked on three farms and a variety of gardening sites (both in the fields and doing educational, outreach work). It is important for me for me to know that my work benefits both the earth and the people living on it. The EcoFellowship has allowed me to pursue this goal and this has been both personally and professionally meaningful.
