Christina Newberry Joins NRCS as New Hampshire's 12th SCA Intern

January 8, 2009

 

Christina Newberry is a proud native of New Hampshire. She received her Bachelors of Social Science in Environmental Education from Unity College in Maine. After graduation she became a program naturalist at Prescott Farm Audubon Society in Laconia. Here she taught home school and preschool programs and was also a naturalist in residency for two local elementary schools. Christina left the Audubon in search of adventure and furthering her education out west. She spent a year in northern Idaho teaching teambuilding, field science and connection to place to middle school students while perusing her masters. Out west Christina had the opportunity to explore the wonders of Sequoia Nation Forest in California as well as hike the Grand Canyon, where she got engaged. Since returning to the Northeast she spent a term teaching ecology at Ferry Beach Ecology School in Saco, Maine. She plans to finish her masters and become a certified science teacher in secondary education.
 

Christina is excited to be joining the NRCS team in Durham. She looks forward to submerging herself in the world of agriculture and learning as much as she can about cover crops, grazing practices and organic farming. She is delighted to share her teaching
skills and looks forward to working with landowners. In her free time Christina enjoys hiking, dancing, karaoke and planning her upcoming wedding.

 

Christina will be working out of the State Office, assisting the technology staff.  Welcome Christina!
