Environmental Educator at Blandford Nature Center, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Favorite thing you like about your work:
I work with many students who obviously do not get outside much, and I love opening their eyes to how awesome nature is.

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 taught me many lessons that I have brought with me to my current job. I learned a lot about working with a team, despite any differences we may have. I was introduced to place-based education, which is very popular in the environmental education field right now. And I am able to create well-written lesson plans after doing my Master’s Project. All these things and more gave me the knowledge, experience, and confidence I needed to obtain my current job. Even if you’re not sure what direction you want to go career-wise, I highly recommend applying to MOSS. Because at MOSS you will learn so many new things, have a one-of-a-kind experience, and get to know an amazing group of graduate students and professors, all the while living in one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.
