Niles received a Bachelor of Arts in social welfare from the University of California Berkeley and has multiple years of experience working in a variety of healthcare organizations. Niles is passionate about social, as well as ecological justice, and is interested in how stereotypes, values, and social hierarchies influence disaster vulnerability and response.
