As our observatory's Outreach Manager, I work to expand environmental literacy, Critical Zone awareness, and the reach of the Observatory's research. I wear many hats to achieve these goals through educational resource development, K-16 student and teacher engagement, website and social media management, and research meeting and site tour coordination, field assistance, and lab shadowing. We're always looking for new ways to engage. Contact me if you have any questions or collaboration ideas.
