Although Hannah Hindley completed her formal education in the east (earning degrees in English and Organismic & Evolutionary Biology from Harvard University), her real education is rooted in the mountains and tidepools of the west. For nearly a decade, her work as a naturalist has carried her up and down the Pacific coast, from Point Reyes National Seashore to Yosemite, Olympic, and Glacier Bay National Parks. She has worked ashore with youth as a field science educator, and she has spent these last few years at sea working as an expedition guide in Alaska and Mexico. Whether afloat or afoot, Hannah works to inspire her students (of all ages!) to stay curious.
When she isn’t looking for invertebrates under rocks at the beach or taste-testing edible plants, Hannah spends her time writing, stealing cookie dough, and (unapologetic cryptozoologist that she is) scanning the water for sea monsters.
