Policy Coordinator – she/her/hers
Sophie Watterson grew up in Vermont but has family roots in Missouri. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in May of 2020 with a B.A. in Environmental Policy and Spanish. As a student, Sophie learned from tremendous internship experiences with the Western Organization of Resource Councils and Washington University’s Interdisciplinary Environmental Law Clinic. After working as a Research Analyst with the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, Sophie returned to Missouri and joined the MCE staff as Policy Coordinator. Sophie hopes to help build a more equitable and sustainable Missouri through sound policy. Her happiest place is running or hiking trails with her partner and her dog, Bean.
