Event Description

Isabel Mendoza

Isabel grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of tropics in her native Ecuador. It was inevitable she decided to become a biologist very early in life. As the realization of that dream, Isabel holds a bachelor‘s degree in ecology and evolutionary biology from University of Colorado Boulder and a master’s in environmental science and policy from Johns Hopkins University. The combination of field work, GIS and her experience growing up in areas with high poverty allows her to understand the nuances of complex environmental issues and to find creative ways to solve them.



Moira Wiedenman

Moira has bachelor‘s degree in journalism and mass communications and English, a master’s in nonprofit management and a life-long passion for sustainability. She fell in love with the nonprofit world when she served as an AmeriCorps member with City Year in San Jose. She spent more than five years doing marketing and communications in the education sector before transitioning to sustainability at The Alliance Center. She’s a vegetarian, an avid public transit advocate, a believer in the power of community and an idealist who's committed to getting things done.
