We are very proud to welcome our newest intern, Erica Jackson, who will be a part of the Phipps Science Education and Research team for the duration of 2015. Erica brings her wonderful experience and enthusiasm to our department and we are so excited to have her!

Erica Jackson is a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh, where is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies, a minor in Spanish and a certificate in Global Studies. She brings with her to Phipps her experience working with children of all ages through clubs at Pitt and volunteering abroad. She loves opportunities to combine her passion for nature with health and education, and believes strongly that everyone should be encouraged to learn from their surroundings. A native of Columbus, Ohio, she appreciates the benefits of protecting green spaces within cities and is thrilled to have the opportunity to further the efforts of Pittsburgh as it becomes more environmentally conscious.

Please join us in welcoming Erica!
