Rebecca has been a student of peace and conflict for most of the past decade across several disciplines and programs with a goal of life-long education. She writes a blog called A Peace of Conflict
. Rebecca focuses her research on the connection between the extraction of natural resources and manifestations of conflict, specifically those in the DR Congo. She is also very passionate about sustainable living and encouraging sustainable housing in her local real estate market.
