Michaela Daugherty

Michaela was a former social media intern for Platte Basin Timelapse. She graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, majoring in Environmental Studies, and minoring in Anthropology and Environmental Education. She is from Omaha, Nebraska, but spent most of her summer and winter breaks from school traveling through numerous national parks and public lands where she learned to love the outdoors.

She is excited to use all she learned from being a part of the Platte Basin Timelapse project to make a positive impact on the planet’s health.
