Susan MonserratManager, Grant Writing
From early memories playing in the backwoods of my hometown, I’ve loved nature. Now, I’ve made a career of working to further environmental sustainability and protect critical ecosystems for the people who rely on them. I’m grateful to be doing that work now at Root Capital as we help farming communities mitigate their environmental footprint while adapting to climate change’s uneven impacts. I support this work across the lifecycle of our grants through developing compelling proposals and backing up our impact with meaningful reporting. While I might be a city dweller now, I haven’t forgotten my roots and like to trade in my computer for outdoor adventuring with my husband and three kids when given the chance.
