Luciana's personal and professional life revolves around fostering connections among people, ideas, and place. As the Education Coordinator at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve she mentors and coaches classroom educators in incorporating local examples and outdoor learning in their teaching, and observing and/or enhancing peoples' connections with the amazingly abundant and important freshwater estuary where the St. Louis River meets Lake Superior. She has demonstrated experience and leadership in environmental education (EE), among the National Estuarine Research Reserve educators and in the past as Youth and Family Programs Director at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center and Field Education Faculty at Teton Science Schools. At the national scale, Luciana trains environmental educators on practices for authentic community engagement as part of the ee360+ team at Antioch University New England. She wrote a module for the North American Association of Environmental Education with resources to continue momentum toward social and environmental justice within the field. Luciana earned a Master of Science in environmental studies with an EE concentration at Antioch University New England and a Bachelor of Arts in biology and secondary education at the University of Minnesota, Morris. Among a group, Luciana values converging on a shared purpose and noticing or creating opportunities for joy. Finding a bird she associates with wilderness under a hedge in a city stands among the magical nature moments in her most recent memory.
