Before arriving to the UQ Peace Center, Sallie was in New York City completing a Masters Degree in Public Administration that focused on Environmental Science and Policy. Prior to that, she worked for three years as a Project Administrator for an agriculture and marketing project in Cochabamba, Bolivia that aimed to help farmers improve their harvests and place their goods in regional and international markets. She also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras for two years, helping rural villages gain access to potable water. She hopes to combine her interests in environmental issues and international development to pursue a career in climate change mitigation and sustainable development.
