Morewood Named Director Of DEP’s Environmental Justice Advocate Office

DEP Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo this week announced the appointment of Kimberly A. Morewood, as Director of the DEP’s Environmental Justice Advocate Office. Morewood previously served as DEP's Environmental Advocate in Western Pennsylvania.
"Kim’s experience and skills, including her strong background working with the regulated community, coordinating with local governments and engagement with advocacy groups, along with her previous service as the western Pennsylvania environmental advocate, have prepared her well for her new role as the Director of this Office," Abruzzo said.
Morewood began her career at DEP as the Local Government Liaison for the South-Central Region from 2001-2004. She then worked for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives as a Public Relations Coordinator, and later, as the Chief of Staff to a State Representative.  She returned to DEP in 2013 to serve in her current role as Environmental Justice Advocate for western Pennsylvania.
In this new role, Morewood will be responsible for providing support to the Secretary by directing the identification of social and environmental justice issues within the Commonwealth, and by formulating and developing commonwealth-wide policies, regulations and laws to support the fair, ethical, and meaningful treatment of all its citizens.
