Aaron grew up in Marion, NC and graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Science from UNC Chapel Hill and an M.S. in Geography from Virginia Tech. Before joining AmeriCorps, he worked as a research associate at Washington State University. Aaron is looking forward to learning many new things about the natural world and passing that information along to the public while serving this term. Aaron spends most of his free time eating ice cream and wishing he could remember what it felt like to be an infant child.
