Ann DeSanctis, New Hampshire Team Program Coordinator
Ann DeSanctis was born and raised in Louisville, KY or, as she likes to refer to it, “the North of the South”. For college she, coincidentally, toured the U.S.’ Commonwealths; She started at UMass Amherst, worked her way down to the University of Richmond in Virginia, and then settled down at the University of Kentucky (UK) in Lexington, KY. At UK, Ann majored in Geography with minors in Anthropology and International Studies, which led her to began her journey towards more sustainable living starting with an internship at the on-campus bicycle shop. It was love at first ride and Ann continued to explore different paths to sustainability. Since graduation Ann worked on an organic CSA farm, as an intern for the Education Division at National Geographic, and, most recently, as a Green Cities Fellow for the Student Conservation Association in Pittsburgh. Ann is greatly looking forward to exploring New England this summer and, as fellow Kentuckian John Jacob Niles once did, she plans to “wonder as she wanders”.
