Emily has been with The Nature Place for 19 magical and nourishing summers. She began her journey at camp as a camper, and still remembers the very first fairy home she ever built in the Enchanted Forest. Emily later became a CIT, a counselor for many years, and then a member of our summer administrative team. In January of 2017, Emily came on board in a year-round capacity, as our Program and Communications Coordinator.
Emily’s formal education includes a BA in both Environmental Studies and Sociology, a minor in biology, and post-college coursework in environmental education. While in college, she backpacked through the California wilderness for ten weeks, studying Eco-psychology. After college, Emily enjoyed some time living in an off-the-grid solar powered trailer in Mendocino, California and worked as a Naturalist under the alias ‘Anemone’, before eventually returning home to The Nature Place. When not at camp, her favorite things to do are climb rocks, search for nudibranches in tide pools, and eat too much cashew nut “cheese”.
