Introducing UW Sustainability's Toren Elste

Hi! I'm Toren, and I'm excited to be part of the UW Sustainability team as the Events and Outreach specialist! As a proud UW alum, I'm excited to be back on campus and working with UW Sustainability. The environment has always been something I have been passionate about - I think it began at an early age with my love of the outdoors, which turned into degrees in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Science. After college (and not ready to get a "real" job yet) I spent time living in Kona, Hawaii working in Ocean Conservation with the best co-workers ever: Dolphins!
