Sunny Menozzi’s military duties have taken her to diverse and exciting places; from Singapore to Arizona, South Korea to Afghanistan, and North Carolina to Hawaii. Sunny’s travels inspired her interest in cities, especially how they function, the impact of the built environment on the residents, the methods planners employ to shape natural features, and the vibrancy that can be cultivated by good planning and design. She plans to pursue a graduate degree in planning with a focus on re-use and historic preservation, community-building, and economic and environmental sustainability. She hopes to contribute to projects that re-purpose military bases. An avid runner, Sunny is interested in the design of recreational trails and policies that encourage the development of walkable communities. She holds a B.S. in International Relations and Russian from the United States Military Academy at West Point.
