Although I grew up in Pennsylvania, I made my way south to North Carolina for university, studying Environmental Sciences at NC State. After graduation in 2020, I began an AmeriCorps term in West Virginia where I helped to write and design hiking trail signage to help inspire new outdoor enthusiasts. In my free time, I love hiking, bird watching, wildlife photography and creative pursuits like writing. I’m thrilled to begin a new service term with The North Carolina Arboretum, and I can’t wait to share my passion for nature with others!
