Paige Knappenberger, Program Manager, Climate Voices
Paige is our Climate Voices Program Manager. She writes strategic and engaging press releases, fact sheets, and other media materials for Climate Nexus and partner projects. Paige also manages and develops Climate Nexus’ relationships with journalists and key media organizations.
Prior to joining the Climate Nexus team, Paige worked for the D.C. Sustainable Energy Utility and interned at Oceana and the Natural Resources Defense Council. Paige completed a dual masters in sustainable development and global environmental policy through American University in Washington, DC and the United Nations University for Peace in Costa Rica. As an undergraduate at Tulane University, Paige had to evacuate New Orleans for a full semester because of Hurricane Katrina. The devastation she witnessed upon returning to New Orleans furthered her commitment to communicating the impacts of climate change and advocating for climate policy and clean energy development.
Paige grew up in Arizona and California and frequently endures the cross-country flight to visit her family out west. In her free time Paige enjoys scuba diving, hunting for treasures at the Brooklyn flea, a variety of arts and crafts, baking and cooking.
