A portrait of Jennifer Bruening.

Jennifer Bruening

Education Assistant

Jennifer assists in developing, organizing, and teaching Audubon Arizona’s STEM-based, standards-aligned nature education programs for elementary age students. These programs include Audubon's Girl Scout program, field trip programs, in-class presentations, and summer programs. These interactive, hand-on experiences are designed immerse students in their natural environment with curriculum focused on native ecology and life sciences.

Jennifer graduated Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences, and with many credits from Scottsdale Community College (Go Artichokes!). As a native Phoenician, she grew up hiking all over and exploring Arizona’s many landscapes. College and volunteer work led her to field biology, where she quickly realized she was too high energy and social to be alone in the field. So she put that energy toward educating children and has never looked back! Before Audubon, Jennifer worked for several wildlife rehabilitation organizations, the Phoenix Zoo, and has experience teaching elementary age students with autism and other behavioral disorders.
