Professional Intern for Outdoor Adventures
Morgan Matthews joined the Loyola University Maryland’s Department of Recreation and Wellness in February of 2019 as the Professional Intern for Outdoor Adventures. Morgan graduated from Towson University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, with a concentration in Organismal Biology and Ecology. During her time at Towson University she was a Trip Leader and student manager for the Department of Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Adventures department. She also participated in Dr. Harold Beck’s Tropical Field Ecology study abroad program, conducting primate-based research at the Cocha Cashu Biological Field Station in the Peruvian Amazon.
After Graduation, Morgan continued her employment with Towson University’s Outdoor Adventures program as the Operational Manager. In 2017 she moved to Seattle after accepting a position with Seattle Audubon Society as the Education Coordinator AmeriCorps. During her time in the Pacific Northwest she developed a love of cycling inspired by forced, daily bike commutes being without a car, and a love of the PNW peaks. In the summer of 2018, she summited Mount Baker with the American Lung Association’s Climb for Clean Air, after raising $3,900 for the institution.
Moving back home to Baltimore after her time in the Pacific Northwest has been great! She loves exploring new places on the east coast, spending time with family, learning about all thing’s nature, and rock climbing with her friends.
