During school at Bowdoin College, Uma worked with a Reproductive Justice organization and served on the board of a homeless day shelter in Brunswick, ME. These experiences shaped her deeply, and confirmed her desire to do work that supports people's health and happiness. Before joining Schuler in October 2019, Uma worked in the outdoor industry as a wilderness trip leader for Camp Manito-wish YMCA and then as Senior Instructor for REI's Outdoor School in Chicago.
Uma loves to play outside whether it's paddling, skiing, hiking or cooking over a fire!
