Marie grew up in Wisconsin on the ancestral and contemporary lands of the Menominee, Potowatomi, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ and the contemporary lands of the Oneida. She spent every summer visiting a small lake in Northern Wisconsin that helped her develop a deep connection to nature. Marie expanded her understanding of humans’ interconnectedness with natural systems with a B.S. in Natural Resources Management/Environmental Education and Interpretation from UW-Stevens Point and an MS in Environmental Education from Antioch University New England. She has worked at various nature and environmental centers, a community garden project, an aquarium, and as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua. One of her favorite aspects of environmental education is curriculum and resource development, which is one of her main roles as Climate Change Instructional Resources Coordinator. When not editing curriculum, she enjoys hiking, cross country skiing, baking, reading, and playing with her dog, Merlin.
