Born and raised in Massachusetts I was able to visit and camp in the wonderful landscapes of the Northeast including White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire, and the beautiful coastal areas of New England. I spent many of my summers working at camps and developed an even stronger interest in nature. I went to college in Upstate New York and graduated with a B.A. in Environmental Science. Afterwards I interned with the Charles River Watershed Association based in Weston, Massachusetts. Now I ﬁnd myself working here at the park and am looking forward to a great 6 months helping to restore some of the marshland and collaborate with a great crew.
