Environmental Educator

May 2019 - August 2019 Milwaukee, WI
“That I was able to experience the field and work with many different educators and get their perspective on environmental science careers.”

Summer Environmental Education Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Milwaukee, WI
“The people at the UEC are wonderful! Everyone has a passion for the job that they are doing. It's easy to see that they love their jobs. I had a very positive experience working there. I loved that I got to spend my summer working in the forest teaching kids how to explore nature. I felt like I was well supported as an intern by the staff I was working with. I felt like my work was appreciated and I was valued as a member of the team.”
