About Barrett

I recently graduated from Environmental Science and Urban Ecological Design at the University of Washington. I grew up in Hood River, Oregon, and moved to Seattle three years ago when I started at UW. I love the city so far but I really miss the trees and access to nature that a small town provides. I spent the fall in Rome on a study abroad studying the Ecology of the Mediterranean. I loved Rome so much and had a wonderful time, but I am definitely excited to be back in Seattle and to finish up school.

My interest in this program came from a history of working with my parents, on my own DIY/house projects, and my love of fixing and improving things. As a recently graduated college student with limited space and funds, tools are not something I can own right now, so having access to this space and getting to learn more in-depth about the mission of the library is an amazing opportunity. I am really excited to work with all the amazing volunteers and staff here!

Seattle REconomy is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit dedicated to reducing our community’s footprint and increasing our climate resilience through education and practical solutions.
