Rae joined WEC after completing a Master’s of Communication at University of Washington with the Communication Leadership program, where they focused on visual storytelling. This choice of study was not random: during their time volunteering with UW Fisheries, they were drawn to the challenge of communicating about environmental science and policy. Rae earned dual degrees in Neuroscience and Art at Pomona College. When not taking photos, filming, or working in Adobe, you can find Rae brewing tea, drawing or painting, or playing the violin in an ensemble.
