Jaslyn Dobrahner

Among the satisfactions of Dobrahner’s job as a Denver-based environmental protection specialist with the EPA is seeing the results of her work firsthand—for example, she says, “Witnessing a school go from having many pest problems and using a lot of pesticides to having very few pest problems with little to no pesticide use—that is rewarding to see!” In addition to reducing chemical pesticide use in schools, Dobrahner has worked to protect farmworkers and endangered species from pesticide exposure.
