Tessa Pulaski was raised by two former Maryknoll Lay Missioners and active Catholics. She graduated from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service in 2015, where she studied Science, Technology and International Affairs. She has served as an intern at the Global Catholic Climate Movement, the Jesuit Center for Ecology and Development in Lilongwe, Malawi, and at Refugees International's Climate Displacement Program and the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement in Washington, D.C.
This past year, Tessa worked on Catholic Relief Services’ Advocacy Team, focusing primarily on food security issues. She is passionate about the intersections between climate change, food systems, development and forced migration. Tessa is starting law school in the fall and hopes to pursue a career in policy work.
Jesus calls us to be relational: just as bread is broken and shared among friends and family, we are most nourished when we are living out Jesus’ message to care for one another and build just relationships in society.VIEW
