Hope grew up on the Florida coast but graduated in the swamp at the University of Florida in 2019. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunications and minored in International Development & Humanitarian Assistance, curriculum that complimented her work experience in the nonprofit sector (since 2014). During college, Hope found fulfilling community involvement at the local humane society working as a development intern. Documenting animals at the shelter soon turned into an affinity for capturing moments in the wild.
This past summer, she explored the realm of seasonal work just outside Acadia, Maine, where she hiked all the peaks in the National Park with her camera in tow.
