Bianca Cassouto graduated from PCGS in 2016 and soon after began working at The Everglades Foundation, an environmental non-profit dedicated to protecting and restoring the Everglades through science, advocacy, and education. She now works as the Education Program Manager and manages teacher training and community partnerships across the state of Florida. Bianca's higher education and career experiences focus on sustainability, environmental education, and the relationship humans have with natural resources. She graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in Geography Geosciences and a minor in Environmental Studies; and received her M.A. in Global Sustainability with a concentration in Sustainable Tourism from the University of South Florida. Her decision to work in environmental education came from interning at local non-profits, interning at the United Nations' World Tourism Organization, and traveling to different parts of the world. She is driven to educate students, teachers, and others on the importance of the Everglades and protecting South Florida’s drinking water supply. Bianca‘s career interests include the availability and protection of water resources, the impact of climate change, and sustainable development. Bianca is a Miami native and enjoys traveling and reading.
