I am a true New Englander, having grown up on Cape Cod. My young adulthood was revolved around hiking/camping up on the Kangamangas Highway, then places in Maine. Since I enjoyed Maine so thoroughly, I then went to Maine for my undergraduate studies at the University of Maine, Orono. I then went on to graduate in May of 2012, with a B.S. in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism.My environmental/outdoor recreation career began as a Whitewater Raft guide. Up in the Forks, I guided commercially Level I whitewater. This was with Three Rivers, during the summer of 2008. Right out of college, I landed a job as a Park Ranger at Lake George Regional Park. During my summer here at Lake George, I had accepted my first SCA position as an Environmental Educator Intern with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was an unbelievable experience teaching anywhere from K-9th grade the beauty that lies in nature.This then catapulted me into accepting my current position with the SCA here at the beautiful Bear Brook State Park. I wish to further engage the youth in outdoor learning activities while showing them my eccentric passion for the environment.
