Lisa Conley Joined Our Team
Greensource would like to welcome Lisa Conley as our new Outreach Specialists. Lisa grew up in Daysboro, Kentucky and credits her rural upbringing in eastern Kentucky with influencing her concerns for the environment. She states, “I love the fact I grew up in a region so full of natural beauty. I was always outside playing in the barn, on the river banks, and in the hay bottoms. I came to appreciate the peacefulness there and could get lost in an afternoon of bird-watching, catching tadpoles, or just walking the hills behind our house.”
Lisa used this appreciation of the natural world when she moved away for college. While attending Eastern Kentucky University and later the University of Kentucky, Lisa researched issues related to environmental disasters in Appalachia and taught as a part-time instructor for both universities. She is currently finishing her PhD in Sociology at UK by researching motivations of home food production, the intersections of environmental sustainability, and local food economies. She is excited to be the new Outreach Specialist for Bluegrass Greensource working with large businesses to increase their recycling efforts and find ways to conserve water and energy usage. She is a great addition to our team!
