Lana is a Senior Associate in the Philanthropic Services practice at CEA. Her work focuses on domestic climate change mitigation, and her expertise includes policy and technology solutions for decarbonization of the four major energy sectors: electricity, transportation, buildings, and industry.

The giving portfolios that she helped manage focused on advancing durable, high-impact solutions to climate change, primarily in the U.S. Before that, Lana was Program Coordinator at Malama Kaua’i—a nonprofit focused on promoting and supporting sustainable agriculture on the island of Kaua’i—where she supervised program leads and managed grant applications and compliance.
