Waves joined T.R.E.E. in September of 2016 as the Earthkeepers Program Coordinator. Having previously served as an intern for Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve’s Centennial year, she is excited to be able to continue working within the National Park’s boundaries in this new capacity, and to be directly involved in hands-on environmental education. After graduating from Florida State University with degrees in Environmental Studies and Geography, Waves worked as a primitive backpacking camp counselor in Southern Colorado, an after-school program coordinator at a middle school in Southern Maryland, and an ecotour guide in the Caribbean waters of the Virgin Islands. Proud to now call New Orleans home, Waves is grateful to be able to work with T.R.E.E. and share her love of the natural world with new Earthkeepers in training.
