Alex Broadbent - Outdoor Education Program Instructor

Born and raised in Brevard, NC, Alex is a true local. After studying abroad in Australia in undergrad, she fell in love with traveling. From Portugal, the Galápagos, Borneo, and Namibia, Alex discovered her passion for environmental education in South Africa. She moved to coastal South Carolina to complete a Master’s Degree in Biology, with a focus on ecosystem awareness. Her return to Brevard was spurred by a desire to give back to the community that raised her and inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.​
