Sneha came to Sequoia Riverlands Trust in 2018 as an AmeriCorps member through the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has always loved working with children and teaching, and knew she wanted to continue doing so in the outdoor education field. After two years of serving as SRT's Education Technician AmeriCorps member, she joined SRT full time in 2020.
As the Development and Outreach Specialist, Sneha helps bridge the gaps between the Education, Development, Communications, and Stewardship teams. She supports the public-facing communications and outreach efforts of SRT, including managing the social media and supporting with the website and other outreach events. She is also heavily involved in grant writing and other fundraising efforts. She continues to work with the education and stewardship departments to support the volunteer program, manage and host special events on the preserves, lead field trips, and support internship opportunities for students across the county. She loves to share her passion for nature and exploration with students of all ages, and is excited to help SRT grow in other areas.
Sneha sees the potential for growth in Tulare County, for both the academic and conservation sectors, and hopes to continue to leverage her passion and skills to make a difference in the area. In her free time, Sneha loves to ride horses, play with her cats, and explore the wonders of California’s public lands.
