Environmental Educator


Spike is a soon-to-be sophomore at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Spike has always found comfort and acceptance in the outdoors throughout his years living in Wisconsin. He heard about Wiscorps and The Nature Place through one of his close friends and decided that working here would be a good fit for the summer. This is his first AmeriCorps term.

In his free time, Spike loves to bike, hike, explore, and do just about anything outside, even more so with his friends and family.
