Mr. Peter Rulon

While in graduate school, studying analytical chemistry, he found he could supplement his income by working for the sports department of the Philadelphia newspaper’s “Today’s Post.” Peter continued following his passion for photography for the next 30 years. Today, he is the owner of his own photography studio in Cedar Point, N.C., and has been teaching photography classes for the Continuing Education Department of Coastal Carolina Community College for over a decade.

Mindy Furrer

After graduating with a bachelor’s in elementary education from the University of Wisconsin, Mindy Furrer wasn't sure she was quite ready to teach in the classroom. Instead, she joined the Peace Corps and for two years taught ESL and social sciences on the island nation of Kiribati. Her next adventure brought her to the Outer Banks, where she is now the program coordinator at the Trinity Center for the Sound to Sea Environmental Education Program.

Ms. Kelli Kaelin

Kelli Kaelin was raised in Little Egg Harbor, N.J. This quiet town on the real Jersey shore is where she developed her love for wildlife and the great outdoors. After graduating from Rider University with a degree in marine science, Kelli worked at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where she was able inspire children and their families to take conservation action. Kelli then found her way to the Sound to Sea program, and is excited to share this wonderful place with all of you!
