Anna joined the Education team at FWBG|BRIT in June of 2021. Her role is to develop and implement engaging environmental educational programs for homeschoolers, Scouts, special needs groups, and summer camps. She brings 9 years of experience in informal science education and has taught at (and learned from) incredible sites such as the Lubbock Lake National Historic Landmark, Science Spectrum, and Dallas Arboretum. During her career she has been fortunate to facilitate a wide range of informal science education programs, including live animal shows, fire and liquid nitrogen demonstrations, kayak instruction, planetarium programs, and outdoor lessons in all manner of Texas weather.
Anna’s driving goal is to foster a love of lifelong learning and appreciation for the natural world in children and their families. Experiences outdoors, in museums, and at nature sites have been formative in her own personal and academic development, and she hopes to facilitate similarly impactful experiences for the public as well.
Anna is on the board of the Informal Science Education Association of Texas.
