Kelsey Hinton joined the Community Water Center in 2015. As an AmeriCorps VISTA Fellow, Kelsey is working to build CWC’s capacity for internal assessment in order to improve and expand CWC’s programs to provide disadvantaged communities with access to safe and affordable drinking water.
This is not Kelsey’s first time working with drinking water access. In 2013, she traveled to Honduras with the organization Global Brigades to construct a sustainable water system for the rural community of El Retiro. Ensuring people all around the world have access to safe and affordable drinking water is what Kelsey hopes to spend her career doing.
Kelsey is from Indiana and recently graduated from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) with a degree in Environmental Management. Her senior thesis focused on the feasibility of direct potable water reuse in Las Vegas. She is currently pursuing her Master’s of Public Affairs with a concentration in Policy Analysis at SPEA.
