Lina joined WeConservePA in September 2020. In her role, she shines a light on the environmental, economic, cultural, and health benefits of conservation and advocates for public policies supportive of conservation including increased state environmental investments.

As a recent graduate of Kenyon College, Lina holds a BA in Environmental Studies and Studio Art. Prior to joining WeConservePA, she spent six years studying environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective in Hong Kong, rural Ohio, Greece’s Dodecanese Islands, southwestern China, and Mexico’s Baja California.

Growing up in Ecuador’s Andean Choco, Lina became a nature enthusiast at a very early age–around the same time when she finally decided to crawl for the sake of piggy-backing caterpillars. She loves to travel, socialize, cook, make art, and learn about environmental history.
