Sophie Janeway, Climate and Clean Energy Outreach Coordinator
Sophie brings her experience canvassing and working on a wilderness campaign for New York State’s Adirondack Park to her role as an outreach coordinator for NRCM, where she engages members and Maine people interested in climate change and clean energy solutions. Sophie gives presentations around the state and hosts or can be seen at many climate-related events. In her travels prior to coming to NRCM, she studied the impacts of climate change on fisheries in Vietnam and farmers in Morocco, and on water accessibility in Bolivia. She is originally from the Adirondack Mountains of New York, and her love for the outdoors drew her to Maine to study government at Colby College. Sophie now happily resides in Hallowell and enjoys biking on the Kennebec River Rail Trail, skiing, fly fishing, and exploring the mountains and rivers of Maine.
