Yashvi Patel

Environmental Engineer

I’m a passionate environmentalist and a firm believer that true and long-lasting change begins from your doorstep. I hail from the era and land where life without single-use plastics existed, so I’m hopeful that this problem can be solved. At Herrera, I get to work with a team of brilliant, dedicated, and innovative minds on all things environment which makes the job so much easier. Outside work- I love to hike, go on road trips and read.
