Originally from Rochester, NY, Adrianna graduated in May 2020 from the College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) in Syracuse NY, with a degree in Environmental Education and minor in Marine Science. Growing up with a forest behind her house inspired Adrianna to become passionate about connecting others to nature. Throughout her college career, she had internships at her local Zoo, city schools as well as on Nantucket working in the field of environmental education and interpretation. Adrianna also had the privilege to spend 6-weeks at sea through Sea Semester studying sustainability, and is excited to be back near the ocean! Currently, she is serving a year of AmeriCorps at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, with the mission of providing educational opportunities for underserved communities. Adrianna is looking forward to using her experiences at ESF and beyond to work with students and faculty at The Nest come August 2021.
