Born and raised in West Philadelphia, Bria found her interest in environmental science when visiting Cobbs Creek as a child. She received her BS in Marine Biology from Florida International University in 2015, then moved back to Philadelphia to teach what she learned. She spent five years working as an educator and coordinator for Fairmount Water Works focusing on aquatic macroinvertebrates and the outreach program for their freshwater mussel hatchery. As of January 2020, Bria has joined the Audubon team as an Environmental Educator teaching neighborhood children about the importance of our watersheds, conservation, ecosystems, and everything in between. She hopes to give kids a modern representation of what a scientist and educator looks like, and spark an interest in science within her students. In her spare time, Bria likes to snorkel, birdwatch, dance, do yoga and watch sketch comedies.
