Hayley Beitel is a scientist by education and an adventurer by nature! She has a Bachelor of Science degree with honors in Geology and a Master’s of Science degree in Geology and Geophysics. She moved from Tennessee to Anchorage, Alaska in June 2021 for a summer internship at the National Park Service. She fell in love with the beauty of the state and quickly found a substitute teaching job to share her passion for STEM with students. She is currently in flight school pursuing a private pilot license for fixed wing aircraft and is teaching and tutoring when she is not out flying!
