Volunteer of the Month: Rachel Hanson (April 2021)

April 30, 2021

Rachel recently started volunteering with EBC as a social media content creator and distributor.

Rachel's academic background has always been centered around the environment. She received a degree in Environmental Studies from Wilfred Laurier University and finished her post-grad certificate at Niagara College for Environmental Management and Assessment last year. While much of Rachel's experience in the environmental field to date has been technical, she is also a very artistic person. Rachel was looking for ways to immerse herself in a more creative position while staying in the environmental field - that's when she stumbled across EBC's volunteer position. Rachel brings previous experience in design creation and communications when she assisted with a communication plan for the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Transitional Leadership Committee.

In Rachel's spare time, she loves painting, gardening and going for nature walks with her pets (see Rachel with her dog, Bear below).

Thanks for all you do for us Rachel - we are very lucky to have you join our team!
