Brenda Ramirez Romero

For Brenda (she/her), after pairing her environmental studies with a feminist lens while studying at UC Santa Barbara, the importance of explicitly making the connection between environmental issues and social injustice began to become clear. After graduating she pursued internships that focused on engaging the Latino/e community around equitable access on public lands. Since then, she has worked as a ranger and educator engaging with others, especially youth, on public lands. Through her career, she shares career development opportunities for youth interested in the outdoors and also works with others to make the workplace more inclusive. She loves to learn about the environment through volunteering with bird and habitat restoration and organizing group hikes.
