Shadeh Begian

Project Coordinator
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Shadeh (she/her), spent the majority of her childhood exploring the forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains with her family. Her love for coast redwoods inspired her to get an Environmental Studies degree focusing on Restoration and Resource Management. Before GRID, she worked in the field, restoring California native plant species in designated natural areas. She joined GRID first as a SolarCorps Fellow in 2022. In her free time, Shadeh can be found camping, reading, and trying to capture the beauty of the West Coast in her paintings.
