Carrie spent her childhood wandering the woods, bringing frogs and snakes home in her pockets. During and after her years as a Biology major at Hiram College she spent a few years doing field work in Suriname, Trinidad, and Alaska and teaching at Manice Education Center, a residential outdoor school in Massachusetts. In 2000, Carrie returned to Holmes County and began work as a naturalist at The Wilderness Center, where she spends her days teaching and helping others to enjoy nature (and filling her pockets with frogs and snakes).
At TWC, Carrie is responsible for the Ohio Certified Naturalist Program and conducts survey/monitoring work on the property’s salamander, snake, and turtle populations, as well as teaching family and school programs.
