Welcome Annie, our new Americorps Intern!
Annie grew up in Cleveland, where she developed an interest in wildlife conservation and sharing her passion for the natural world with others while volunteering at the Cleveland Natural History Museum. She double majored in Biopsychology and Environmental Studies at Tufts University and gained more environmental education experience through summer internships. After graduating, Annie spent time teaching English in Brazil and led outdoor natural science programs on Nantucket. She came to Oregon last winter to work on an organic goat dairy and settled in Portland afterwards working with a local watershed council. In joining WREN, Annie is pursuing her goals of making the world a better place for all living things, connecting people to nature, and promoting environmental conservation; she believes everyone should have access to the psychological and physical benefits of healthy natural spaces. In her spare time, Annie enjoys hiking, reading mystery novels, and cooking elaborate meals with friends.
