Quynh Vo (she/her)
VHCB AmeriCorps Conservation and Outreach Field Specialist
Quynh grew up in Vermont after immigrating from Vietnam at the young age of 4. During her childhood, she constantly watched Steve Irwin’s shows and documentaries narrated by David Attenborough. Her interest in learning about the wonders of nature led her to develop a deep passion for protecting the environment and the wildlife that relies on it.
Quynh received a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Vermont, where she conducted research on humpback whales and their intraspecies interactions through drone footage, leading her to nurture the dream of one day making a significant impact in the field of animal behavior. She is currently serving her first year in AmeriCorps as a Conservation and Outreach Field Specialist at Winooski Valley Park District / Burlington Wildways. Quynh’s service includes outreach initiatives, supporting conservation efforts, supporting growth of native plants, and organizing the City Nature Challenge. Her service also includes creating educational materials on animals residing in Burlington!
Outside of service, you can find her either birding, bee-watching, drawing, or watching her neighborhood squirrel scream at her from its telephone pole near her house. Quynh is excited to expand her knowledge through her experience at Burlington Wildways and can’t wait to share her love for the natural world with others.
