Vanessa McGrady was way crunchier than any of your Prius-driving Santa Cruz-alumni friends: She was so crunchy, a bear once pooped on her coffee table.
But McGrady eventually learned how to convert her passion into a living. She moved from the Pacific Northwest to civilization, bought expensive cheese and now works in L.A. for an investor-owned utility (her blog post on Grist.org doesn't say which one).
She bills herself as a kind of enviro-mole, someone working from the inside to preach conservation and energy efficiency.
