Liz – Education and Conservation Team


Liz (Payonk) here!  I recently graduated from the University of Chicago last June with a degree in Biology, all the prerequisites for medical school, and a desperate need to explore alternative passions before entering into the sleep-deprived world of medicine. I am a huge advocate of seeking out uncommon life experiences. So, naturally, I hopped on a plane to Singapore to conduct research, after which I hopped on several more planes to ultimately end up at Bear Brook and get in touch with my environmental side. My interests number many, but my main interest lies in discovering new interests, which makes Bear Brook a great place to be. Other than that, you might find me belting out songs, trying to think of creative ways to stay active indoors, or snuggling up on couches for warmth.  Cheers!
