Growing up in the Metro Detroit area, Brianna didn't see a lot of typical "nature" around her. But she loved finding animals and bugs, riding bikes, and having picnics in the city. So today, Brianna aims to help local kids see that that’s all part of nature too – right in their backyard. As the environmental education supervisor at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, Brianna strives to pass along a conservation legacy and climate consciousness by starting from a place of love.
