Social Media Specialist
River is a nomad currently residing on Kumeyaay land. Inspired by the impacts of climate change on their native coral reef in Okinawa Japan, River started their journey into non-profit messaging. Calling themself a translator, River takes the ideas of the experts in science, climate, and activism and translates them to the public using social media. To dive deeper into the ability to communicate with diverse demographics, River is completing their Masters in Conservation Biology with Miami University with a focus on conservation literacy.
When not behind a screen amplifying voices, you can find River hauling their kids, skateboards, bikes, snacks, and more on their bike or in the ocean teaching SCUBA and marine conservation classes.
