Grace was born and raised in lovely Lawrence, Kansas. She first traveled east to play golf and start studying environmental issues in the Piedmont region of North Carolina before earning her environmental science degree along the Gulf Coast of Texas. To complete her nationwide tour, Grace headed west to earn her law degree with a concentration in environmental and natural resources from the University of Oregon and is now grateful to call Eugene home. She previously worked with the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center, Western Environmental Law Center, and most recently, has been working on forestry and climate justice issues with Beyond Toxics. When she’s not working on forest and climate defense, you can find Grace at the farmer’s market, searching for the nearest water source, or taking her rescue pup Sylas to explore a new trail.
