Jeff was first introduced to Environmental Education while working at Maine Bound Adventure Center during his time at the University of Maine; where he studied Ecology and Environmental Sciences. He discovered a passion for introducing youth to the outdoors through trip leading, team building, and just having fun in nature! As a native of Peru, Maine he was excited to return to Western Maine after college and begin inspiring kids in his own neck of the woods. He worked as a Field Teacher for several seasons, and ultimately as Program Coordinator. Jeff is a Wilderness First Responder, and a Maine Trip Leader. When he’s not working or in the woods, you can find him drinking coffee, and watching The Patriots game with his wife!
