Inside Timberland: I am the CSR strategy & reporting manager; I manage Timberland’s comprehensive CSR strategy by building plans to integrate social and environmental initiatives into our business, engaging external stakeholders on issues like climate change and human rights, and managing reporting and disclosure of non-financial impacts.

Outside Timberland: I love to do anything in the outdoors - cycling in the summer and skiing in the winter are my favorites!

My favorite thing to do in the outdoors: New England is home - I love to play outside in Vermont in particular. But I also love to travel - hiking in Patagonia was one of my best vacations ever!

My favorite Timberland product: I love SmartWool anything! Base layers, socks, hats, gloves... you name it. My favorite is the cycling gear. Who knew that wool could be so functional? The wicking capabilities are unparalleled.
