Morgan Florsheim

Environmental Education Coordinator at Cumberland River Compact

Studied at Brown University

Q: What drew you to serve with AmeriCorps?
A: I was drawn to serving with AmeriCorps because I wanted to do meaningful work and to be given a higher level of responsibility than your average entry-level job. I also feel like I have been privileged in my access to education and I want to pass that on to others through environmental education work.

Q: What are you most excited to do in your new service position?
A: I am really excited to get to do some curriculum development and to engage young people in environmental work. I had some amazing mentors in that field when I was younger and I would love to be able to serve in a mentorship role for other young folks.

Q: What is a silly/random fact about you that you?
A: I didn’t eat a burger until I was 20 years old.

Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not serving or volunteering?
A: I love to run, hike, bike, canoe, and generally spend time outside. I also really enjoy reading and writing and watching bad reality TV shows.
