New CTNC AmeriCorps Member
Maya is serving as the Stormwater SMART AmeriCorps Member with the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) in Kernersville, NC. She was born and raised in Hickory, NC and now lives in Winston-Salem, NC. Maya earned her B.A. in Biology from Wake Forest University, and worked in the WFU Office of Sustainability as a Sustainability Ambassador and the Waste Reduction Intern. Her past work experience and college coursework have led her to pursue a career addressing the need for sustainability education. While serving at PTRC, Maya assists in coordinating the Stormwater SMART program by providing environmental education on water quality and facilitating community outreach events. She is excited that this partnership with PTRC and the Conservation Trust for North Carolina (CTNC) AmeriCorps program will allow her the opportunity to further develop herself as an educator as well as serve underserved communities in the Piedmont Triad.
“I knew that serving with CTNC AmeriCorps and the PTRC would be the perfect opportunity to explore the intersections of environmental sustainability, education, and social justice while inspiring the next generation of conservation leaders.”
