Campus Reuse Team Lead
Hello! My name is Kalea Conrad and I use she/hers pronouns. I am a (Spring '22) graduate of Cal Poly's Environmental Management and Protection program and am beginning the second year of my master's program in Environmental Sciences & Management. I am from Hermosa Beach, California, a truly beautiful beach town that inspired my desire to pursue an environmental science education. I am intrigued and preoccupied by inadequate plastic & organic waste management systems, and will undoubtedly dedicate my career to improving state-wide waste management. I am working on my graduate thesis with Dr. Nicholas Williams, conducting ethnographic research on plastic mulch utility and waste in strawberry production. Ultimately, I plan to pursue a career in agricultural waste management, regenerative agricultural extension, or work in the Organic Standards realm.
