B.A. in Sustainability, Arizona State University
Keshet is originally from New York and has lived the nomadic lifestyle since the age of 16. She has always been happiest when outside and was lucky enough to grow up camping, hiking and finding the quietest corners of national parks across the United States during her childhood. A high school backpacking trip ignited her passion to protect and teach others about the beauty and importance of the natural environment around us. She focused her studies in sustainability at Arizona State University on international development and environmental policy.
Keshet fell in love with international travel and the Spanish language while studying abroad in Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua and since then has continued to follow her passion for the outdoors and youth development in the international community. This has led her to a variety of roles including trail maintenance, conservation biology, wilderness therapy, organic farming, and environmental education. Her recent pursuits have led her to Indonesia, diving deep into the topics of wildlife conservation, deforestation, and the influence of religion on environmental policy. Keshet is a compassionate mentor and teacher and wishes to inspire and empower the next generation of environmental stewards. She has led programs in Indonesia for high school and college students with Dragons and other organizations and loves to learn and discover more about this incredible country alongside her students!
