I am passionate about the environment, and so proud to be on HOPE’s CoolRoofs team, where we train jobseekers to improve the energy efficiency of New York City’s buildings. As a HOPE graduate myself, I can help our current students understand what sustainability is all about.


And, we continue to support you long after you begin your career.
