    Valentina was born and raised an hour north of New York City and enjoys the outdoors. She is always looking to cultivate new volunteers and put them in positions where they can flourish and loves to take every opportunity to educate members of the public and volunteers about all our fantastic programs. Volunteers are the heart of our organization and because of them and public support we can educate our community by sharing what we have learned from our research efforts. Making sure they have the tools they need to be able to get the message out there is one of her top priorities. She prefers to ride her bike to work and when she is not working she still spends some of her free time walking the beach for cold stunned sea turtles and picking up garbage, ruing the day balloon releases became a thing. When she is not outside she enjoys reading books on a variety of topics and genres and spends every opportunity to play with her puppy.
