Meet Our New Program Coordinator

We're growing again! EENC hired our first staff in January 2018 after 27 years as an all-volunteer organization. Less than four years later, EENC is expanding our staff in order to better serve our EE community. After a thorough review with internal and external stakeholders, EENC is thrilled to announce that Michelle Pearce has joined our team as our new Program Coordinator.

Michelle will coordinate professional development programming across the state, supporting our strategic priority to increase recognition of EENC as a go-to resource for environmental educators. Michelle is a certified North Carolina Environmental Educator and has a Master's of Arts in Education with a focus in Science Education. Her passion is empowering educators with tools that will help them provide equitable and inclusive learning. She brings a weath of experience in professional development facilitation and event coordination to our team.

Michelle is a long time member of EENC and has served on the Board of Directors as Membership Chair, Education Chair, and as the 2016 President. She is also serving in a support role at The NC Arboretum in Adult Education/Professional Development and as the state coordinator for Outdoor Wonders and Learning.

With the growth in our capacity, EENC is excited to provide more in-person and virtual events, workshops, and training for environmental educators across North Carolina over the next year.
