Longtime NERRd Returns
The Delaware Reserve—and NERRA—are excited to welcome Jennifer Holmes back to the NERRS family in her new role as coastal training program coordinator. Jennifer previously served as the Reserve’s education coordinator from 2006–2014.
“Over my career, I have had amazing opportunities and experiences which allow me to see resource use and protection from numerous points of view. It has been wonderful to work collaboratively with so many talented individuals,” says Jennifer. “In my new role, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the NERRS as well as local and regional partners toward a sustainable and resilient future.”
Jennifer returns to the Reserve from serving as the natural areas program manager for Delaware State Parks, and prior to that as a science and mathematics instructor at Calvary Christian Academy in Dover, Delaware. Before she served as education coordinator at the Delaware Reserve, Jennifer worked as an environmental scientist with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Wetlands and Subaqueous Lands Section and program manager in the DNREC Drainage Program. Before arriving in Delaware, she was a wetland ecologist in Ohio.
She has a Master of Science degree in Natural Resources Management from Ohio State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science from Salem-Teikyo University (now Salem University) in West Virginia.
