Mandy Wieser: ConservEN Program Coordinator 2012-2013

Mandy (right) on her way to the Golden TempleI grew up in the state of Nebraska, USA, but attended university in Virginia (Hollins University), Washington DC (American University) and Costa Rica (University for Peace).

I’ve lived, worked and/or studied abroad in various Latin American countries (Chile, Guatemala, Costa Rica) and also in Korea and, currently, India.

Much of my work as been focused on natural resource management, sustainable tourism, teaching, and working with indigenous or marginalized populations for the last 5 years.

My most recent accomplishments have been hiking the Camino de Santiago (French route), learning to cook Dal and surviving winter in the Himalayas (this is ongoing, but going decently well as I’ve taken up Henna art and am accomplished in making Masala Chai).
