Larissa joined Waterkeeper Alliance in 2015 as Staff Attorney for the Clean and Safe Energy campaign. She grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley, where she developed a love of the outdoors through her family’s many hikes.
Prior to joining Waterkeeper Alliance, she worked as a Legal Associate at Potomac Riverkeeper. While studying at American University’s Washington College of Law, she interned at a number of environmental non-profits, including San Diego Coastkeeper. As an undergraduate at Brandeis University, Larissa majored in Environmental Studies. Her first undergrad internship was with Hudson Riverkeeper, which is what inspired her to go to law school and sparked her passion for the Waterkeeper movement.
