Marie Soledad Cohen
Board Member at Large
Energy Circle Rep.
Kathy is one of the founding members of SEEDS, holding leadership positions from 2008 until the present. She thinks that SEEDS is one of the most inspiring groups she has ever worked with.
She holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a MA from Marywood University. She moved to Wayne County in 1972 to work as staff illustrator at Highlights for Children Magazine. She lives on an old farm in Lake Ariel with husband Pete Snyder where they raised two sons, and continue to raise most of their own food. They have solar power and a geothermal system.
Kathy has been a board member of the Northeast PA Audubon Society since 1974. She is active in peace and justice issues, and environmental education (including spending 4 years creating a mural at Wayne Conservation District, to be used for environmental education).
She now volunteers her art skills to help her favorite organizations raise money.
Education Circle Rep.
Jamie has more than 30 years working in environmental education in Northeast PA and is currently the Director of Environmental Education at Lacawac Sanctuary.
Environmental education has never been a job for Jamie, but instead a true passion, leading her to share her knowledge and wonder of being part of an incredible planet.
Jamie has a Masters of Science in Ecological Teaching and Learning from Lesley University as well as a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education and Environmental Science from East Stroudsburg University. Beyond environmental education Jamie enjoys spending time with her husband Larry Reeger (another advisor), and two children, Leah and Caden. Jamie is an avid gardener and tries to grow much of the family’s food for the year. Eating local whole foods is another way she believes she can affect positive change for Earth and her family. She also enjoys backpacking, biking, skiing, camping, canoeing and anything outdoors.
Food Circle Rep.
After nearly a 30-year career in the telecommunications industry, Jack is now a local advocate and volunteer for sustainability, solar energy, small-scale farming and locally grown food. He and his wife, Mary Anne Carletta, live in a super-insulated, net-positive solar-powered home and eat mostly from their vegetable garden near Hawley, PA. Jack has served as a past chair of a chapter of the American Solar Energy Society, and is also a co-founder and past president of the Clean Energy Co-op Inc. (which spun out from SEEDS in 2014).
Jack holds Electrical and Computer Engineering degrees from Clemson University and Carnegie Mellon University.
Charles (Chuck) SanClementi
Outreach Circle Rep.
Charles moved to Hawley, PA from Manhattan in 2005 and became a full-time resident with his family in 2009. Born and raised in New Jersey, he studied at Pratt Institute and William Patterson University, then worked and lived in New York City. A former conservation assistant for The MET, Chuck’s professional experiences include managing fine art galleries, running an independent fine arts installation and logistics business, and instructing at NYU Graduate School. In 1995, he co-founded a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, an online fine arts reference library. With a master’s degree in fine art, Chuck is accomplished in wood working, design and construction, and brings a lot of handy know-how to the table.
In 2016, while serving as a board member for his residential community, Chuck successfully organized a grassroots information campaign stopping Kinder Morgan and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company from extracting 4 million gallons of lake water in Pike County to test a newly constructed 13 mile section of one of their fracked gas pipelines running through Wayne and Pike counties. The hard-fought effort prevented a proposed months-long lake siphoning project that would have required the use of approximately 1,600 tanker trucks in an otherwise quiet residential community. It was at that time he first learned about SEEDS and has avidly followed it ever since. “I’m honored and excited to be more directly involved with these environmentally indispensable issues,” he said.
Olga, of Clarks Green, brings more than a decade of professional experience in energy and sustainability disciplines through the lens of accounting, ratemaking, policy, and communications.
Most recently, Olga specialized in energy-related consulting and content development for individual companies, highlighting their sustainability efforts, translating complex information into user-friendly materials and recommending policies and best practices for sustainability initiatives. Previously, she served as an auditor with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), ensuring compliance of jurisdictional companies in the wholesale electric power, natural gas pipeline, and oil pipeline industries.
Olga earned a Master’s degree in Renewable Energy and Sustainability Policy from Penn State and a B.A. in Public Accounting from The City University of New York. Her expertise and interests include energy and sustainability technologies, community resilience, and strengthening and empowering families. She also enjoys snowboarding, hiking and biking with her family and is an avid history buff.
