Prior to Elemental
Jared served the City of Oakland as a Climate Corps Fellow, hosting community workshops across all districts to ensure Oaklanders’ voices and lived experiences were reflected in each climate policy proposal of the City’s 2030 Equitable Climate Action Plan. Outside of the community engagement process, Jared revamped Oakland’s greenhouse gas emissions inventory methodology and researched carbon-free buildings policy.
Previously, Jared worked across the Bay as a paralegal for the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Northern District of California and then as a data analyst for the Defender Services Office.
Jared holds a B.S. with Honors in Conservation and Resource Studies from UC Berkeley.
Outside of the office
Jared can be found backpacking, stacking development cards in Catan, agonizing over Spotify playlists, and rechecking the recipe just one more time.
