What I do

Jyoni Tetsurō Shuler holds a Joint M.Sc. in Sustainable Tourism Management from the University of Southern Denmark, University of Ljubljana, and University of Girona, and a BA in Psychology from Georgetown University. Their academic and professional background centers around sustainable development for underserved communities both in the US and abroad, with an emphasis on ecological and human health. They have over five years of experience working with various nonprofit and research organizations committed to improving outcomes for low-income urban and rural communities around the US, Central America, and the South Pacific.

They most recently completed a year of AmeriCorps service through the Confluence Environmental Center in Portland, OR, where they co-led an environmental restoration crew comprised of low-income students of color. Now in Idaho as a Community-Based Research Assistant, they bring their combined love of animals and ardent passion for public health and social justice to the IHAC-led study on the Pets for Life intervention program through the Humane Society of the United States.
