Q: Juli, welcome to Karp Strategies! Tell me a little about your background and work.
A: Thank you! I’m currently working on my Master’s of Environment Management at Duke University. Previously I was primarily focused on doing education work with the Rockaway Initiative for Sustainability & Equity and at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. I have a B.A. in marine biology and have always had a strong connection for the ocean, which fueled me to study marine biology and my passion for teaching it!
Q: What projects are you most excited to work on at Karp Strategies?
A: I’m most excited to work on projects related to offshore wind and coastal resilience. These two topics have been the center of my focus in graduate school. I really like how Karp Strategies have brought planning concepts into the offshore wind space that have been more human-focused, like the stakeholder engagement and workforce development components. Many of my friends in graduate school have focused on topics like animal-related impacts, but I really am most curious about the human side of offshore wind development.
Q: Tell me a fun fact about yourself!
A: I lived in a houseboat in Rockaway for a few summers while I worked in Jamaica Bay and loved it. I’m also a scuba instructor and lived in Bonaire and Curaçao (Dutch Carribean islands) for one year after college. It was there I developed my love of teaching and spreading my love for the ocean.
