After growing up in a small town in Vermont, Kelsey moved to North Carolina to attend High Point University. She is majoring in Sociology and Anthropology, and has two minors in Women’s and Gender Studies and Environmental Studies. After graduation she hopes to advocate for social and environmental justice by researching the relationships between people and their environments. This is her first year at GRP and she is so excited to watch and help kids build their own relationships with nature! Much of her time in Vermont was spent outside and around animals; her favorite summer activities include horseback riding and exploring swimming holes in the Vermont woods. Kelsey is looking forward to expanding her explorations to North Carolina alongside curious kids! She finds spending time in nature to be one of the most grounding experiences there is, and is looking forward to a summer of growth.
