Please Welcome our Summer Interns: Teddi, Fallon, Marielle & Mariya!

Washington Wild is pleased to introduce you to our three summer interns: Teddi, Fallon,  Marielle, and Mariya. They are working on several important projects for us in the office and you'll also see them at outreach events around Western Washington! Next time you see our Washington Wild booth at a farmers market or a fair, stop by and say hello to our fabulous interns! 

Teddi McFall – Conservation Outreach Intern

Teddi grew up in Washington State and has always been interested in the beautiful landscapes and nature found here. She is currently studying at UW and will graduate next year with a degree in Environmental Science with a focus in Landscape Ecology and Conservation. Her future plans include traveling and potentially earning a Masters after gaining more field and work experience. Her favorite activities include backpacking, kayaking, bouldering, playing music, and petting cats.


Fallon Boyle – Wildlands Conservation Intern
Fallon graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2012 with a major in biology and a minor in environmental policy and decision making. Since then, she has been working in youth outdoor leadership at the YMCA and thoroughly enjoying her decision to stay in the pacific northwest. Her favorite things to do outside are skiing, rock climbing, road biking, and looking at flowers. She loves to cook, especially with beets. 

Marielle Trumbauer – Teens In Public Service (TIPS) Intern
  Marielle is a soon-to-be senior at Bishop Blanchet High School. As a 2013 Teens In Public Service (TIPS) intern, Marielle has the opportunity to work with Washington Wild in the office on social media and other online aspects. Marielle is an avid tennis player and skier. She is the captain of both the Speech and Debate team and the tennis team at Bishop Blanchet, but loves to spend her free time running and enjoying the great outdoors. As a born and raised Seattleite, Marielle has a great appreciation for the beauty of nature, which is why Denny Creek is one of her favorite places to hike. Travel, adventure and curiosity are the passions that define Marielle, and she hopes to utilize them in her work with Washington Wild.

Mariya Khalid - YMCA Earth Service Corps (YESC) Intern
Mariya grew up in Waterloo, Canada but currently lives in Bellevue and is a junior at Interlake High School. While living in Bellevue, she really adores the endless natural beauty around her. When going on vacation, her family usually drives instead of flying to enjoy the scenery on the way. She volunteers with  YESC through the “green team” at school and enjoys all of her trips with them. She loves to hike, travel, walk in the beautiful parks of the Puget Sound and bake. She hopes to go to UW and would like to major in Biology.

Welcome, Teddi, Fallon, Marielle and Mariya! We look forward to getting to know you this summer!
