Jennifer Hoffman, Ph.D.
Jennie began studying the effects of global change in 1992 as a toxicologist and carried this perspective to the University of Washington where she earned a Ph.D. in marine ecology. While she began graduate school with the intention of pursuing an academic career, she eventually decided she'd rather save the world. A co-founder of EcoAdapt, Jennie now works independently to help organizations integrate climate change into their work through targeted research, decision analysis, and workshops and trainings. She is author or co-author of several books and reports, including Climate Savvy: Adapting Conservation and Resource Management to a Changing World, which she co-wrote with Lara. When environmental problems seem daunting, she calls on her undergraduate degree in geology from Brown University for a long-term perspective that keeps her chipper. If that fails, she heads for her garden and orchard where she is frequently reminded that nature usually triumphs.
