Experience

During her time at Allegheny College, she conducted research on Cob building—an ancient style of building which uses organic materials—for her senior thesis project. Paige also played a role in helping to establish a food hub and mobile farmer’s market in Meadville, PA that connects local producers with the community. Prior to GBA, she served as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Crawford County, PA, where she focused on the opioid epidemic—researching causes of addiction, strategies of prevention and intervention, and ways to educate the community.

Paige graduated from Allegheny College with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Communication Arts and is GPRO: O+M certified as of September 2018. Paige hopes to become a LEED Green Associate this fall.
