Micah serves on the City of Boulder’s Clean Energy Technical Team, as well as the RenewablesYES and Empower Our Future teams, which are citizen-led efforts to municipalize Boulder's electric power in order to transition from fossil fuels to clean renewable power.  She serves on the steering committee for the Coloradans Against Fracking coalition and the board of Colorado Rising, which is working to pass ballot initiatives to restrict fracking near communities.  Micah also serves on “The Shed” - Making Local Food Work coalition and created the Boulder Edible Landscapes Coalition to promote local food growing and access for all community members.  She received a 2014 "FearLess Women Leading GREEN" award, Sierra Club's 2007 Delta Chapter Black Bear Award, and 2014 BVSD Superintendent's Honor Roll for creation of a model Greenhouse & Garden to Table Program at Columbine Elementary. Micah is the mother of two daughters who fuel her passion to build a powerful climate and clean energy movement, create resilient communities and transition to a sustainable future.
