At PCEI, we couldn’t do what we do without volunteers, particularly our interns. This dedicated group of individuals provides additional support to our pillars of learning, serving, restoring and living. We are grateful for the time and enthusiasm they put forth. Their contributions help propel the mission of PCEI. In return, we do our best to offer guidance and provide direction for their current interests and future careers.
Natalie Amble, Environmental Education Intern
I am currently a Senior at Washington State University. I am majoring in Sociology with a minor in Political Science. Coming from Carnation, Washington on the west side of the mountains, moving to Pullman was a big transition, but I have fallen in love with the landscape and the weather. In my free time, I like to golf, snowboard, cook, and hang out with friends. I have always wanted to help the environment so getting a chance to help PCEI with their mission is a great opportunity.
