Parks Planning and Engagement Intern

Ariana is a parks planning and engagement intern for the Norwood Greening Project as well as the Puente Hills Landfill Park. She works to inform and connect with residents of the neighborhoods around these new green spaces so that they best suit the needs and desires of their respective communities.

The most fulfilling part of her work is seeing people excited about the potential that lies in their neighborhoods. She hopes to continue helping communities connect with their environment and each other to create a more sustainable and interconnected SGV.

Ariana is a lifelong resident of the San Gabriel Valley. She has recently graduated from UC Davis with a B.S. in Sustainable Environmental Design and a B.A. in Design. Outside of work, Ariana enjoys painting, crocheting, making puzzles, and spending time with family, friends, and her pets.
