Patricia Tallman, PhD
Patricia Tallman has a Doctorate in Water Resources Engineering (University of British Columbia, Canada) and a Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering Sciences (California Institute of Technology, USA). After her post at McMaster University as an Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering, she became a private consultant to natural resource industries.
Despite her educational background and her professional work in environmental policy, Dr. Tallman didn’t make the connection between individual daily actions and global environmental issues until 2003, when she decided to become vegan for ethical and environmental reasons. In her current speaking engagements and writing, including 10 editorial articles in 2013 for The Vancouver Sun, Dr. Tallman helps people understand the immense value of adopting a plant-based diet for the well-being of our planet and all its inhabitants.
