TRENTON, NJ -- The New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club announces the appointment of Anjuli Ramos-Busot as the chapter’s new director. Before taking this position, Ramos-Busot worked for the NJ Department of Environmental Protection as a climate change research scientist and air quality specialist.
“I am honored to be appointed to lead the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club. New Jersey is a small state, but one with so much environmental beauty. We are also very unique because of our densely populated nature, which puts us in a very susceptible position when dealing with pollution. Even “small pollution” is “big pollution” for New Jersey. There is a lot of work to do, and I am excited to work and fight to protect our environment and people, particularly those communities most impacted by pollution and climate change,” said Anjuli Ramos-Busot, Director of the Sierra Club New Jersey Chapter. “I am proud to have this opportunity and to continue the great work of my predecessor.”
Anjuli is a highly-skilled environmental scientist and advocate with substantial knowledge in air quality and climate change. She earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Puerto Rico before getting her M.S. in environmental chemistry and air pollution science and technology from Rutgers University. Anjuli has also previously volunteered with the New Jersey chapter of the Sierra Club as Air Quality Issues Coordinator.
"I am really excited to have Anjuli join us. Out of the scores of applicants we had, including some amazing people, Anjuli stood out. She's really well-qualified, an environmentalist down to her core, and she understands what's at stake," said Rich Isaac, Chair of the Sierra Club New Jersey Chapter. "I know that Anjuli is going to do an amazing job, and that she will help us build and grow our collaborative work with many different organizations."
