Meet Texas State Park Ambassador Brandi Heasley
"I'm just a girl who grew up at the beach loving all things nature and wildlife. My childhood was spent outside partaking in camping, hiking, biking, and kayaking and these activities are still very much a part of my life. Once I started college, I realized my purpose in life was to educate others on the beauty and importance of the great outdoors. From then on, I devoted my time at Baylor University to studying Environmental Studies. With this knowledge, combined with my passion and newfound love of blogging I hope to inspire my peers, just as the works of Rachel Carson, John Muir, and one of my college professors, have influenced me."
