Melissa Skirkanich


Since 2014, Mel has been pursuing her passion for environmental education by teaching in museums, nature centers, outdoor science schools and zoos. Born and raised in Leesburg, Mel earned her degree in wildlife conservation from Virginia Tech, and has since then made her career out of connecting people to the natural world. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, reading, and camping. You can always find her with a cup of coffee in hand, and most likely mismatching socks.​
