Megan Pistolese ’14
Environmental Educator
The Nature Conservatory

What is your career highlight or proudest career moment to date?
I recently landed my dream job with The Nature Conservancy as an Environmental Educator. On top of this experience, I am an avid public speaker and have given annual lectures and presentations concerning environmental issues for Earth Week at Jefferson Community College, and Environmental Days for the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County 4-H club. SUNY Empire has pushed me to consider pursuing a master’s degree in the environmental field.
