Regional Manager of Youth Programs
Collin joined the NPT team in 2013 initially as an intern, and currently serves as our Regional Manager of Youth Programs overseeing the Buddy Bison school in the mid-Atlantic region which includes approximately 30 Title 1 elementary and middle schools. Prior to his role as regional manager, Collin was also responsible for the national expansion of our Kids to Parks Day initiative.
Collin graduated from Colorado College in May, 2013 with a bachelor's degree in biology. During college, Collin studied at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and the University of Massachusetts -- Boston, where he researched and completed a senior honors thesis on the denitrification potential of a permeable reactive barrier on Cape Cod, MA. How do you top that (let alone spell it)?
To complement his studies, Collin became a huge enthusiast of the spectacular Colorado outdoors and led several backpacking trips throughout the southwest. Collin ran one of Colorado College's largest volunteer groups, mentoring at-risk middle school boys in Colorado Springs. When not working, you’ll likely find Collin riding his bike on the streets or on the trails.
