Natalie McBranch

Natalie recently graduated from Whitman College with a degree in biology. She grew up playing outside in Northern New Mexico and has been excited about science since she dissected her first owl pellet at the age of six, so she’s been working to intertwine those passions ever since. She completed a semester with the National Outdoor Leadership School in 2014, which solidified her interest in outdoor experiential education, and for the past few summers has been a part of a team conducting research on how climate change affects Southwestern conifer species. She spent last fall working as a field instructor at the Teton Science School in Jackson, WY and is currently dedicating herself to a lifelong addiction to skiing before pursuing a graduate degree in biology. Natalie is also a big fan of hiking, reading, baking, goofy socks, and green chile chicken enchiladas.
