Tehri Parker, PhD
Environmental educator, advocate, and student.
My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we’d make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe.
No, wait, that’s someone else.
Like a lot of folks that do the work I do I spent a great deal of time as a kid outside, exploring nature. I made friends with ground squirrels, hummingbirds, stray cats, and pretty much any animal that crossed my path. I once caught a trout while fishing with my father, but after I named it and created its backstory my father was forced to release it.
In college and graduate school I studied environmental science and education, and spent my summers working at camp and traveling cross country with friends on my bicycle. My work ethic and style was born through these experiences.
My professional career has centered around working with nonprofit organizations on issues ranging from sustainable living to wildlife and land conservation. These places have been filled with passionate and dedicated individuals, and I carry a bit of each of them in my approach to life.
