Elizabeth Murphy has more than two years experience working in the non-profit sector. She received her Bachelor’s degree in international development from the Elliott School of International Affairs. An avid supporter of environmental stewardship and justice, she has worked with organizations like the American Council on Renewable Energy and Sustainable Nantucket to promote responsible agricultural and land use practices. Elizabeth has worked with both Latin American youths and public sector leaders in D.C. who are concerned with educational reform and community development. Her most recent project at Sustainable Nantucket was the development of a robust Farm-to-School program including a 75,000-acre garden that will provide the public school cafeterias with locally sourced inputs. Her experience on Capitol Hill and attendance at lecture series by John’s Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and the Center for American Progress has given her valuable insight on the challenges and opportunities facing developing countries and enticed her to pursue a career to ensure the sustainability of such development efforts.
