Elise Scheuermann (she/ella)
Program Staff / Personal del programa
Elise grew up in Santa Barbara and spent her childhood tidepooling and exploring local trails with her family. She is grateful to her family for fostering her love of nature, which led her to the redwoods in Santa Cruz, where she majored in Environmental Studies with a minor in Education. She spent 6 years leading outdoor education and nature connection programs up north before moving back to Santa Barbara. Elise aspires to promote positive experiences in nature and feels joy when she witnesses children building relationships with the natural world. In her free time she can be found hiking with her dog, surfing, gardening, or reading.
