Meet Our New LEED Interns for 2015

By Sustainability Interns | December 10, 2015

Brenda Corona – LEED Team Leader

I am a senior majoring in Environmental Engineering with a minor in Environmental Science. I am interested in environmental infrastructures and sustainable alternatives as a possible career option. I am a strong advocate for protecting the environment. Currently, I am the Chair of an awesome and young organization, the US Green Building Council (USGBC) Student Chapter. If you wish to get involved, you can find our organization’s information on Highlander Link. My experiences have lead me to many wonderful opportunities by volunteering on and off campus in Riverside and San Diego.

I started volunteering and working for the Office of Sustainability since my sophomore year. I worked as a Power Ranger conducting Freezer audits and helped with the 13 solar panel benches that are on-campus. This year I have the opportunity to work on LEED EBOM certification for UCR buildings. The knowledge and skills that I am gaining with my supervisors and professionals are making a difference to the pathways I wish to follow and that is to help the environmental quality. Through the sustainability activities and UCR events, I hope to engage students in making the change that will positively impact our campus.


Rushi Patel – GCAP LEED Intern


I am a senior Electrical Engineering student. When I am not doing engineering work, I am either watching TV or playing basketball. I like to think that my life revolves around school and working out. My goal aside from graduating from UCR is to start a company of my own in a sub-discipline of Electrical Engineering. Currently I am working on a sumo robot project and taking my last set of Electrical Engineering classes, closing on a graduate date of June 2016.
