Allison Fink

After recently earning an associate’s degree in environmental science, Allison attends Rutgers University, where she explores the facets of ecology and the fundamentals of geographic information systems. She had both a lizard and parrot as a child, which inspired her curiosity about the natural world. Allison spent two summers hiking through New Jersey’s Pine Barrens searching for northern pine snake nesting sites, which fall victim to dehabitation. Allison has worked one season under the City of Long Branch’s police department, where she assisted officers in preventing contraband from entering beaches. She has also dabbled in tardigrades, forestry classes, and marine habitat restoration. She aspires to become a conservation officer. Allison most recently worked for the seafood department at her local grocery store, where she educates customers on sustainable fishing and the occasional octopus fact.
