Americorps Appreciation Week: Celebrating Mikayla Tran

This week, we’re celebrating our GrizzlyCorps fellow Mikayla Tran for her great contributions to our water team at Sustainable Conservation. Mikayla joined us to help understand the confluence of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long-Term Sustainability (CV-SALTS) to drive better outcomes in water and sustainable agriculture.

Meet Mikayla

Before joining us, Mikayla received a Bachelor of Science in Society & Environment with a minor in Human Rights from UC Berkeley.

Based in the East Bay, Mikayla is passionate about reproductive rights and environmental justice, and she hopes to pursue a legal career in the future. Outside of work, Mikayla enjoys running on local trails, playing board games with friends, and spending time with her family dog, Ren.
