Melissa Czinn

As a child Melissa would lay under a tree in her front yard wondering how a seed could turn in to such a magnificent plant. Her wonder for the natural world is what led her to pursue an undergraduate degree in environmental science and a Masters in ecology and evolution at the Rutgers University. After graduate school, Melissa became an educator at Turtle Back Zoo and an adjunct ecology professor at Kean University. Melissa is excited to be able to educate and encourage others to appreciate animals and the environment.
