Hi everyone!

Like Comment

My name is Shannon Moore and I am joining the course as a career switcher, of sorts. I have a B.S. in Biology and an M.S. in Environmental Science, both from the US. During my Master's, I focused on the impact of invasive plants on bird populations, but grew a strong interest in education and outreach. 

I then spent the next several years working as a naturalist and outdoor educator with a few organizations, giving me insight into the differences between government, non-profit and private sector work. 

However, once my husband's job moved us to Tanzania in 2014 and then Germany in 2018, I was only able to find voluntary work in the conservation sector, so I decided to become a Primary classroom teacher. We will be moving to Vietnam in November, and while I still have a passion for education, I would like to return to the environmental field and am hoping that the SDWC course can 'refresh my memory' a bit and give me more confidence to switch careers, again!

Looking forward to meeting everyone soon,


Shannon Moore

Welcome Shannon! That is an exciting move and hopefully will bring with it exciting opportunities for you to switch back to the environmental sector. B
