Allie Toomey

Education Coordinator

Allie Toomey began her career in field education for children and adults of all ages. She has worked in the mountains of California and the coast of the Long Island Sound, developing and teaching science curriculum for pre-school through high school and beyond. In her past position she oversaw the development of a multi-school, service-learning based organization aimed at getting high school students involved in protecting and preserving the environment, beginning in their local communities. While completing her B.A. in Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at the Ohio State University, she was an active member of the Advocates for Children and Education Scholars Program and earned a minor in Education. During her junior year, she had the opportunity to assist with the Delaware Shorebird Project, working to count and monitor species of migratory shorebirds throughout the entire Delaware Bay area. Growing up splitting time between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Allie has had a life-long passion for the environment and education that she is excited to bring to classrooms around the world through EarthEcho International.
