Carrie spent her childhood wandering the woods, bringing frogs and snakes home in her pockets. Today, she has 20 years of experience sharing her love of the great outdoors. During and after her years as a Biology and secondary education major at Hiram College she spent a few years doing field work in Suriname, Trinidad, and Alaska and teaching inner city youth at the 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 adult, family and school programs.
