In 2014, Massie left a career in social justice law to begin laying the groundwork for The Climate Museum, which is the first museum in the United States dedicated to the climate crisis. Through powerful exhibition experiences and interdisciplinary programs for all ages, the museum works to inspire learning, dialogue and action as it builds community around climate education and solutions.

Formerly a civil rights litigator, Massie received Fletcher Foundation, W.E.B. Dubois Institute, and Harvard Law School Wasserstein Public Interest fellowships. She also held a mentorship-in-residence at Yale Law School.

Massie earned her J.D. from New York University, her M.A. from Yale University, and her bachelor’s degree from Cornell University.
