Amy enthusiastically joined the PEI team in late 2021. She earned a BS in Plant Biology from University of California, Berkeley and is completing a Master of Sustainability Leadership degree at Arizona State University. She carries a true love for nature and a desire to facilitate outdoor experiences that spark lifelong curiosity. She has spent a good portion of the past 25 years working with youth (and adults) in a diverse range of environmental education settings and has especially enjoyed exploring ecological restoration, composting, pollinator/native plant gardening, stream monitoring, and more recently civic participation. She holds a special place in her heart for the tiny living things of the world that often go unnoticed. Amy believes solutions-focused community involvement provides a foundation for active hope, something we humans essentially need.
We are incredibly grateful that Amy has joined our team and look forward to the amazing collaborations she will make with educators and partners in the Eastern Washington region of our state.
