Lara Nagle graduated from Oberlin College in 2009 with a degree in Environmental Studies.
She hails from Pittsburgh, PA, and is completing her third SCA position, as a fellow for the Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP). She believes this is one of the best acronyms she's ever heard that also stands for a legitimate organization.
Her other work with the SCA involved wildlife research in Cloudcroft, NM, with the Forest Service, and sustainable community and business development with the Trail Town Outreach Corps in Connellsville, PA.
Lara's long-term professional aspirations will likely involve urban agriculture, land conservation, and sustainable city planning.
