Jemmy is originally from Boca Raton, Florida and has been working with communities in various forms since her undergraduate time at the University of Florida. During this time, she discovered a passion for the Environment and graduated with a Bachelor's in Anthropology with a minor in Sustainability. She spent most of her free time volunteering on farms and speaking to local residents about the delicate Florida ecological systems. Since graduating, she served as the Sustainability Project Coordinator at the city of Orlando. She worked mostly in local food/livability, connecting with under-represented communities and building lasting relationships with them and the city. She has worked in free tree programs, mobile farmers markets, rooftop gardens, renewable energy and water ordinances, community gardens, community outreach, and event planning. This October she moved to Colorado to puruse a masters at the University of Denver in Environmental Policy and Management. Outside of work and school, Jemmy likes to cook, practice yoga, do water sports, go hiking, rollerskating, and dance! As the Volunteer Coordinator for The Park People, Jemmy will put her skills and studies to work, connecting with people and making programs come to life.
