Stina grew up in the Southwest and has long had a love for being outdoors. Always wanting to be involved in conservation work, she majored in Sustainable Ecosystems at Arizona State University. During an internship and volunteering at a reptile sanctuary, she educated children about the importance of protecting wildlife and ecosystems. She saw first hand how educating youth could make a huge difference in their lives and wants to continue to influence younger generations. She enjoys hiking, reading, music, and rainy days.
