2005 Interns

Brianna Buntje:

Brianna was born and raised in Minnesota and earned a B.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a major in Psychology and a minor in Business in 2004. She has previously worked in financial advising, retail, mortgage banking, market research, psychology laboratory research and as natural science instructor. Her passion for sustainable business was sparked at a course at New South Wales University, Australia when she was studying abroad in 2004. When she’s not working for NCS, Brianna loves to travel, hike, explore and otherwise be challenged. Since she joined us in May of 2005, Brianna has been helping develop and archive presentations as well as researching our pending publications with the Chicago Climate Exchange and articles and books that are in the works.

Brianna joins NCS as full time staff in September 2005.

Sean Calhoun:

Sean was an intern with NCS for five weeks before returning to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia for his senior year. A Boulder native, he is focused on sustainable international development and just returned from on-site academic research on the evolution of democracy in Argentina and Chile.

Sandra Iseman:

Sandra Iseman joined NCS as an intern this summer, bringing her planning expertise to help develop the NCS sustainable economic development planning model. Along the way, she’s made strong contributions to our climate change case studies, to the Fort Carson-sponsored Pikes Peak Sustainability Indicators Project, and Hunter’s recent sustainability speech in Alberta, Canada. Sandra is a Toronto-area native about to start the second year of her PhD at Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany) in European Urbanistik Studies.

Scott Leach:

Scott translated his environmental studies at CU Boulder and his volunteer work for the CU environmental center’s climate change activities into helping NCS with its climate change case stories and strategies. We look forward to this Massachusetts native’s great energy and efficiency continuing to help us in the coming year.
