Lena was a former News and Events intern for Platte Basin Timelapse and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in December 2021. Lena graduated with a Fisheries and Wildlife and Journalism degree. She grew up north of Lincoln on an acreage with a pond, a prairie, and plenty of pets. This place was the first of many where she cultivated an appreciation for the environment. This was also the place where a love for capturing the outdoors through photos and writing began to bloom. Lena hopes to continue to write, photograph and see the natural world and continue to share it with others. She is excited to use all that she has learned from both PBT and UNL to continue sharing her passion for the outdoors.
