In the Field Friday: Haley Schmersal

By: Nicole McMullen

We would like to introduce Haley Schmersal as our “In the Field Friday.” Schmersal graduated in May with an Associate of Science in Agricultural Communication from Ohio State ATI. Preparing to transition to the Columbus campus of Ohio State, she is interning with the Toledo Metroparks.

As an Outdoor Skills Programmer, she is responsible for instructing a variety of outdoor programs. These programs are designed for people of all ages to learn proper safety procedures for outdoor equipment. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, archery, and tree climbing are examples of the different programs Schmersal leads.

This internship has pushed her to try something outside of her comfort zone. Schmersal adds, “That’s where the most growth happens!”
