Urban Forester at Hennepin County. Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Favorite thing you like about your work:
Organizing and coordinating community tree plantings. I really enjoy living in a city but being able to work on urban greening projects. To me, urban forestry is a future thinking profession that helps to improve the everyday quality of life for many urban residents.
Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
MOSS was a great experience for me after undergrad. I was able to explore the world of environmental education, gain more confidence teaching, and work with and be inspired by amazing coworkers and staff. I often think back on my time at MOSS as a very formative experience and education is still very much a part of my professional career. MOSS is set in a beautiful location that lends itself to exploration and appreciation for the natural world.
