Assistant Director of Field Programs
Jill Korach earned an undergraduate degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis where she focused on tropical rainforest ecology, a master’s from Miami University’s Institute of Environmental Sciences concentrating in conservation biology, and she is currently working toward her Ph.D. in biology. As a part of Miami’s Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology doctoral program, Jill is exploring the role important natural areas play in our lives and how ecological, cultural, and social values contribute to conservation. Through her role with Project Dragonfly at Miami University, she instructs international and web-based courses and serves as a master’s advisor. Jill is president of the board of Imago, a Cincinnati-based grassroots environmental organization focused on connecting communities to nature and sustainable living (http://imagoearth.org). She credits her love of the natural world to the outdoor adventures she takes with her family and getting a chance to climb trees as a child.
