Emma grew up in rural Western Massachusetts and spent much of her young life playing in the outdoors and being fascinated by plants and animals. Her love of the natural world led her to study at Colby College in Waterville, ME where she received a B.A. in Biology. She arrived at Chewonki in January 2010 and has been with the Traveling Natural History Programs ever since. She loves teaching with wildlife and visiting communities all over Maine from the Western mountains to the islands and Caribou to Kittery.
