About (Summary)

I graduated from Keene State College Cum Laude with a BA in Writing and a BS in Environmental Studies. Last summer I completed 18 weeks of interning with the National Park Service at Tonto National Monument in Roosevelt, AZ where I developed an interest in interpretation and recently completed an education internship with the US Fish and Wildlife Service at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley, NY. In the future I hope to attend graduate school to pursue a Master's degree in either Conservation Education, Environmental advocacy, or Environmental Policy and Justice. In addition, I hope to make a difference through volunteering on organic farms and through the Peace Core.

Intended Job Path

I would like to be an interpretive naturalist. So, something in Conservation Education with a specific focus on Wildlife for an NGO would be ideal. I am also interested in protecting and advocating for both the environment and human societies world wide through grassroots and policy making. Being a Science-Fantasy author would also be nice!
