Izzy Sigrist has been deeply passionate about sustainability ever since her grandpa gave her the book 50 Simple Things Kids Can do to Save the Earth when she was just six years old. Although she’s been practicing sustainability in her everyday life since then, she’s recently joined the sustainable workforce at ecoREAL Solutions, where she is a Project Manager and Sustainability Coordinator.
She is a Fitwel Ambassador and a USGBC Green Classroom Professional. When not at work or volunteering, Izzy loves to go on bike rides with her husband, read, and go to the zoo. She has been a coach to elementary schoolers for almost a decade for multiple different programs. Along with being on the Oregon Green Schools board, she is also the Communications director for the OGS PDX chapter, and co-chair of Social Media for Sustainable Building week.
