Outreach is a real priority for Thinking Like a River. Therefore, we have hired an Environmental Outreach Coordinator to help schedule and plan events out at the Goodall Center. She also coordinates with local educators and the public to form meaningful collaborations in the community.
Haley Briel comes to the Spartanburg area from Toledo, Ohio, where she was born and raised. She received a Bachelors of the Arts in Environmental Sciences from Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee in 2012. While at Vanderbilt, Haley conducted research with Dr. Steven Goodbred in Bangladesh, taking sediment cores in an attempt to reconstruct a recent history of the Brahmaputra river's course across the country over time. After this experience, she became very interested in water, particularly moving water, and how it relates to human culture and resources. She found a wonderful niche via employment with Wofford College, where her passion for nature is instilled in Goodall Center visitors.
