I grew up playing outside. I eventually realized my own interest in environmental issues and the natural sciences come from my childhood experiences being outdoors and learning about the world around me, and working as a naturalist allows me to play a part in providing that foundation for others. I love helping to spark that connection to our (not just “the”!) environment in people, a connection that leads to questions, curiosity, and lifelong discoveries about the amazing world all around us. I especially love working with kids, in no small part because I have always remained a kid at heart.
