My name is Carolee Williams and I started as the CVSC Lowcountry Field Director in 2017.

My passion is working to make meaningful connections throughout the Lowcountry on all things related to clean air, water and energy, plus land conservation.

I’ve spent much of my career managing long-range planning and sustainability initiatives for the City of Charleston. I’m particularly proud of our work creating and shepherding Charleston’s Green Business Challenge, which supports workplaces as they work to reduce their use of energy and water and reduce their waste.

I’m also fond of my efforts to help create Charleston’s first Sea Level Rise Strategy in coordination with the city’s emergency and stormwater management departments.

I was also one of the founding members of the Charleston Resilience Network, which strives to provide accurate and timely information for decision making relative to resilience from water in the region.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy seeing Charleston from a kayak or the mountains from a 1840s log cabin.
