📚 Fellowships, Teaching, Advising, and Mentoring Program

From 2022 to 2023, I participated in the Teaching, Advising, and Mentoring program at the Entheon Institute. In 2022, I continued my involvement in a similar capacity at the JEI Learning Center of Coppell in Coppell, Texas. During the summer of 2021, I was part of the Summer Mentoring Program at the UFM Community Learning Center, where I mentored students at Manhattan High School.

Additionally, from 2020 to 2021, I was awarded the Science Communication Fellowship, working with the Sunset Zoo in Manhattan, Kansas. My efforts extended to Zoo Sprouts and Science MHK, both accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). I also collaborated with the Kansas Science Communication Initiative (KSCI) and the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education (KACEE).
