Molly Johnson, Living with the Land and Building Community Specialist, arrived in Sitka last fall to serve as a Jesuit Volunteer with JVC Northwest. She is already enamored with the diverse and abundant wilderness that surrounds her. Molly is originally from Connecticut and recently graduated from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. There, she studied Environmental Science, while minoring in Faith-Justice Studies which allowed her to examine environmental issues from a social justice perspective. As an undergraduate, Molly spent two summers working as an interpretive guide at Hammonasset Beach State Park, introducing park patrons to Connecticut wildlife and ecosystems. She was also fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica to study sustainable development in rural communities at EARTH University and serve as a medicinal plant intern for the Kèköldi Scientific Center. She is most passionate about climate justice, coastal ecosystems, and building sustainable communities. Molly is excited to share her love for the environment through her work with 4-H Alaska Way of Life and Fish to Schools programs.
