Evelyn is joining EAN as a summer 2024 intern, focusing her research on consumer protection for utility bill payment. She is a recent graduate from the University of Vermont’s Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources where she received a BS in Environmental Studies and a minor in Equine Studies.
