“When I first came across Conservation International in 1991, I was just looking for a way to give back. But, as I became involved with the work of CI, I learned about the important work they were doing to improve human well-being through the care of nature.
“The message was simple: People need nature. More than 20 years later, this simple message is more important than ever.
“The environment has become a political, polarizing issue. It’s time to change the conversation about nature to focus on what we all have in common: our shared humanity.
“This is at the heart of CI’s mission, and that’s why I’ve been on the board for more than 20 years and currently serve as Vice Chair.”
