Raquel Parks

Law Student Intern

My name is Raquel Parks and I am a 3L. Born and raised in California, I fell in love with anything to do with nature at a young age. I received a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of California: Santa Cruz and utilized my degree working in various fields after college including as an ecological field technician, a veterinary technician, and in the biotechnology industry. I was excited to shift gears and move to the east coast to study environmental law where my passion for preserving nature could be channeled into a new profession. Writing my law review article on microgrids sparked my interest in renewable energy sources and has influenced me to also focus on energy law.

Fun fact: I have been scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and cooking in my spare time.
