Hi! My name is Symone (she/her), and I am growing my career as an environmental educator. I currently work in Alexandria, Virginia and am in the process of trying to move to the greater Seattle area in Washington state (yes I know, neither of those are Colorado!). I find a lot of joy in teaching outside of a traditional classroom setting and helping my audiences to connect science to their everyday lives. My first experience as an environmental educator is at the Buddie Ford Nature Center (which is my current position). Prior to this position I was a Partnerships Intern for Junior Wildlife Ranger, and a STEM Program Instructor for Girl Scouts of Northern California. I am always striving to make EE accessible by learning/unlearning and by integrating JEDI into my work. I am also always looking to learn new tips and tricks of the trade in order to become the best environmental educator I can be. Thanks for reading!
