Bluegrass Greensource welcomes Emily Casey to our team! Emily joins Bluegrass Greensource as an Environmental Educator working primarily with elementary and middle school students. She holds a B.S. in Education and Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont. Emily is originally from New Jersey and has spent time living throughout New England and Colorado. Emily spends her free time exploring Lexington (GO CATS!) and “playing” outdoors around the beautiful Bluegrass region she now calls home.
Bluegrass Greensource welcomes Tiffany Smith and Macy Gould to the team!
Tiffany Smith joins us as PR/Development Manager. Tiffany earned a Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Eastern Kentucky University. She has worked in non-profit fundraising for the past three years and is excited to join the team at Bluegrass Greensource. While not at work, Tiffany enjoys spending her free time at home with her husband and son.
Macy Gould is the AmeriCorps VISTA Member who serves as Greensource’s Green Jobs Coordinator, working with educators to ensure that students are aware of and prepared for the variety of green career paths that await them after high school graduation. Macy is originally from Minneapolis, but considers Lexington home and enjoys visiting her family in Colorado Springs. She recently graduated from Transylvania University, where she studied Sociology and Educational Studies and took a particular interest in urban food deserts. Outside of work, you could likely find Macy planning for her community radio show or taking a long walk downtown.
Greensource welcomes Beth Oleson, our new Outreach Specialist, to the team! Beth joined us in March 2014 and will be working with the LiveGreenLexington Partner Program, helping local businesses and apartment complexes expand recycling efforts, improve energy and water efficiency, and reduce stormwater runoff.
Beth began her own environmental education as a toddler, flipping over rocks in her Lexington back yard to check out the bugs living underneath. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Marine Science and a minor in Environmental Studies in 2008, and promptly moved back to Kentucky and several hundred miles from the nearest ocean (although she still enjoys scuba diving whenever the opportunity arises). In her free time, Beth is passionate about native plants and animal rescue. She still flips over rocks to check out bugs.
