Guest Relations Representative at Stoneleigh
Karyn first joined the Natural Lands family when she became a Force of Nature® volunteer in 2014. When the organization created the part-time position of guest relations representative at Stoneleigh: a natural garden, she was a natural for the job! Her enthusiasm for the natural world and the biodiverse beauty at Stoneleigh comes across as she greets and guides visitors to the garden.
Like many of Natural Lands’ employees, Karyn has had a lifelong love of open space. “One of my most significant memories was volunteering with the Student Conservation Association and living in the Virginia mountains for a summer building a hiking trail.”
Karyn holds a bachelor of science in forest management from the University of Maine and an associate of science in nursing from Delaware County Community College. She is also an emergency medical technician.
