    Admin Assistant/Volunteer Coordinator


    The sun even shines in the forest. There are dark places along the trails of life, but if you keep walking, you will find a spot where the light of the sun just bursts through.

    I have a B.S. in Child and Family Studies from Syracuse University. I love learning new things, and believe that the best way to learn them is “hands on.” So, you may see me doing a variety of tasks around the Center because as an Administrative Assistant and Volunteer Coordinator, I need to be able to convey to others what needs to be done or how to do it. I like to work efficiently, and sometimes that means taking time to learn the process of how things work before I can act prudently.

    I started at Silver Lake Nature Center as a volunteer in April of 2014 and became a member of the staff in 2015. Come out and join us for Volunteer Work Days. It usually consists of meeting new people, cleaning up the Nature Center grounds, Len’s hot soup and sandwiches, and good old fashion fun. Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information about how you can get involved.
