Marilyn Castriotta, MS ‘13
Marilyn Castriotta spent a decade in the medical field until discovering her passion for the environment. At AUNE, she discovered what to do with that passion. “I’m applying what I’m learning to a world in need,” she said.
A former vascular technologist, Marilyn left the healthcare industry and went to work for an organic farming association, and later as events manager for Ceres, a nonprofit that advocates for sustainable leadership and a sustainable global economy. While there, she learned about The Climate Reality Project, an international nonprofit organization founded by Al Gore, former vice president and Nobel laureate. She was selected to be one of a thousand people personally trained by Gore to raise public awareness of climate change and possible solutions.
When Marilyn decided to return to graduate school, she didn’t have to look far for a school that met her needs. Her brother graduated in 2002 from AUNE and she attended a workshop given by ES professor Tom Wessels, who greatly impressed her.
