Hi! My name is Berta.
I grew up loving animals and science and being outside getting dirty while I explored every inch of the outdoors I could. I always wanted to be a zookeeper when I grew up. That passion never dulled as some dreams do when you realize how big the world really is. As I got older and started working, I only fell more in love with science and our worlds animals. I have held a few wildlife positions as I worked my way through college. From wildlife rehabilitation technician, to raptor team member at a local nature center, to helping leading guided field trips through natural reserves and teaching kids about the wildlife around their homes. I am still working on my goal of working conservation in a zoo or as a zookeeper and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I want to keep exciting people about our world, its wildlife, and conservation.
So whether it's through a guided nature hike, a science or dissection class, or tutoring sessions, I want to help students gain a passion for learning.
