This summer we welcome two new crew members to our education team, Kate and Nicole.
Kate says, “I am from Cape Ann, Massachussetts, where I grew up messing around in boats, tidepooling, and collecting smelly treasures to go into natural ‘dioramas.’ I studied Earth and Environmental Science (geology!) at Wesleyan University and was lucky to spend my spring semester of 2014 on the Robert C. Seamans with SEA, studying climate science and singing on bow watch. After graduating about a month ago, I am super-excited to get back on the water to learn and teach about the Hudson River. In my free time, you will find me planting or picking flowers, cooking, and continuing to glue things together.”
Nicole says, “I was born and raised in the Ocean State, in Cumberland, Rhode Island. I recently graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in Biology and Environmental Sciences. This is my first time on a tall ship and I am super excited to live aboard and teach kids about the Hudson River! I really like insects, dancing, and long bike rides to nowhere. If I could own any exotic pet, it would be an orangutan and my favorite cheese is sharp cheddar.”
