Originally hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, Miki grew up constantly spending time outdoors. Some of her favorite childhood memories include her swimming in the Outer Banks in the summer and hiking through the Blue Ridge mountains in the fall. She believes that growing up with so many profound experiences in nature has shaped who she is today and has ultimately fueled her passion for the outdoors and protecting the environment.
As a recent Environmental & Sustainability Studies graduate from Elon University, Miki hopes to continue to foster positive community relationships centered around environmental sustainability, environmental justice, and environmental education. In her free time, Miki loves to run, hike, and read. You can find her hanging out in the garden and experimenting in the kitchen.
