Carolyn Birkenfeld

Carolyn knew she wanted to be a part of the CEP community ever since she was first exposed to it her freshman year. As a Seattle native, urban environments and sustainable development have always interested Carolyn. CEP gives her a unique space to further explore her passions surrounded by an amazing and inspiring group of people, so she can one day better the lives of the people around her by helping cities grow responsibly, sustainability, and equitably. Carolyn’s summer study abroad experience with Sustainable Urban Mobility has inspired her to consider a focus in mobility or transportation planning. She plans to minor in urban planning and environmental studies. Carolyn also spends her time as a sprinter on the UW track team, biking around Seattle, and skiing.
