Ariana oversees the contact database and supports the staff at Climate Solutions by integrating our online engagement systems, providing data analysis, and improving the structure, organization and adoption of our Salesforce CRM.
Prior to joining Climate Solutions, Ariana worked at Cascade Bicycle Club where she served as the membership and development manager from 2014-2017 and the digital marketing manager from 2017-2018. During her time there she focused on centering the database within the larger ecosystem of online engagement platforms, helping staff members to better understand and communicate with their communities.
In 2008 Ariana graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. in Ornamental Horticulture and a minor in French, and in 2012 she completed a M.S. in International Agricultural Development at University of California, Davis. She encountered the impact of climate change and economic uncertainty on small-scale agricultural systems all over the world, and became a passionate advocate for clean energy solutions as the necessary foundation for a sustainable path to prosperity across all nations.
Ariana spends her time off-duty playing the dirt, listening to podcasts, walking with her partner and their dog, and cultivating a cosmic perspective on life, the universe, and everything.
