Azucena Quinones

Teacher

After 4 years at UC Santa Barbara, Azucena is happy to be back in Los Angeles holding a degree in Environmental Studies ready to share her skills and enthusiasm with Biocitizen. 

Azucena’s passion for the outdoors and the environment was first discovered through sightseeing at her university. The abundant natural splendors on campus served to spark her interest in the flora and fauna of California, along with her relationship to the environment. While there she joined various organizations revolving around social justice and the environment.

She worked for the City of Goleta giving tours of the monarch butterfly grove to children, worked as a lead teacher for Kids in Nutrition teaching children about sustainable eating, and their connections to food and the environment. Her most recent professional pursuits involved giving eco-tours of a local wetland, with lessons focused on native species and the importance of being environmental stewards. 

Azucena is excited to teach all the curious young minds at Biocitizen LA, and help support their own connections to the environment and create a safe space to fosters individualism and creativity!
