Windley Knowlton

Climate Programs Intern

Windley Knowlton is thrilled to join the Second Nature Team as a Climate Programs Intern directly following her graduation from Oberlin College in December 2022. As an Environmental Studies major, she focused her studies in renewable energy systems and climate migration. In undergrad, she interned at a national solar distribution company, served as a research intern for the Environmental Justice Committee at the Environmental Defense Fund, researched local sustainable investment opportunities in Oberlin as an Entrepreneurship Fellow, and taught tap dance to toddlers. Under the mentorship of Dr. Md Rumi Shammin, she served on a team analyzing audits of environmental conditions at Kutupalong Camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Last summer as a Doris Baron Fellow, she traveled to Belgium, France and the Netherlands to study the recycling process of photovoltaic waste. Outside of the office, you can catch her tearing it up at dance class, hiking Mt. Monadnock, skiing, and, once again, teaching tap dance to toddlers.
