Favorite thing you like about your work:
I love that I get to make a career out of my inherent passion for environmental protection and stewardship. There is no greater feeling! Plus, living in Colorado is truly amazing.

Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
My time at MOSS was absolutely instrumental in getting me to where I am today. I forged friendships that are still ongoing nearly 15 years later and also made professional connections that helped to open many doors. I became proficient in delivering high quality environmental education lessons to youth, and also learned how to apply academic theory to real-world situations. My time at MOSS also opened my eyes to the nonprofit sector and the importance the sector plays in changing lives and making an impact. I would wholeheartedly recommend MOSS to anyone wanting to take their training and career in environmental leadership, environmental education, or other related field to the next level. It was a life-changing experience for me!
