Listen in as WAP associates Caroline Triscik and Jasmine Obeyeskere Fernando interview Jamie Ong, Environmental Protection Project Manager at the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation as they discuss nature, faith, family, and enduring Covid-19.

Living in the center of one of the most hard hit areas of the Covid-19 pandemic, Jamie Ong gives us a glimpse of her life as a professional woman working for NYC’s Department of Parks and Recreation, as well as her roles as mother and spouse. Jamie shares how her faith influences her work in the city, especially in restoring nature and making it accessible to all. She continues to seek the welfare of her community as a follower of Jesus in the midst of these challenging times. Additionally, she offers her story of contracting the virus, needing to isolate from her family in their NYC apartment, and her hope for her community to flourish.
