Initially attracted to the environmental field’s critical thinking and multi-perspective approach, Andrea Auerbach first discovered environmental education in college. Since then, her experiences in the field have reinforced her desire to share the outdoor world and environmental education with students. She earned a master’s of natural resources, is a certified Virginia Master Naturalist, and volunteers as an environmental educator at Belvedere Elementary School. Andrea brings more than 15 years of experience in environmental strategic planning and program implementation to ASNV. In her free time, you can find her teaching skiing and sailing.
