Kersey joined the Oregon Green Schools Board in December 2018. After receiving a degree in Environmental Studies at Florida Gulf Coast University, she moved out west to pursue a career in non-profit work. Kersey served in AmeriCorps in Billings, MT, then ventured to Bozeman, MT to further explore the Rocky Mountains. Her sense of wonder grew as she learned how to snowboard and grow a garden during just a 2 month long summer. However, with a desire for a larger community, she then relocated to Bend, OR and immediately started volunteering at the Environmental Center, where she continues to stay involved. Kersey is the Project and Administrative Coordinator at Commute Options, a non-profit educating and encouraging the public about active transportation, transit and carpooling to help create a more livable community. Connecting people to each other and the natural environment is where her passions intersect and align with Oregon Green Schools.
