They met decades ago as students at the Yale School of Environmental and share a passion for the environment. They will be joined by their dog Stella, an exuberant 2-year old yellow lab who loves to play frisbee and meet other dogs, and on weekends and holidays by their youngest daughter, Ellie, a Research Data Associate at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and recent graduate of Bowdoin College. Stella is available for playdates in the courtyard and campus walks by contacting Linda or John.
