Kimberley Berry ’21

Unity College Alum, Kimberley Berry, works as a part-time Conservation Educator at the New England Aquarium and part-time as an In-Gallery Programs Educator at the Museum of Science Boston.

“When I graduated from Unity College in May of 2021, I was nervous that I wouldn’t have enough “experience” to jump headfirst into any wildlife profession. However, I can wholeheartedly say I have learned more from Unity and can teach more effectively than many of my contemporaries. Thanks to my experience and education through my graduate program, the core skills I developed were inclusive and adaptive strategic framing and communication practices, making me an excellent science communicator for the general public.

I split my worktime post-grad between two institutions – The Museum of Science, Boston, and the New England Aquarium. I have heavily relied on my science communication training to facilitate daily educational programs. As a conservation and science educator, I work every shift to inspire conservation action in various audiences to protect the ocean and promote inclusive science learning in everyday life! This can range from facilitating exploration labs on engineering or animal skulls, to mediating safe guest interactions at a shark and ray touch tank, to giving educational talks at the top of the NEAq’s Giant Ocean Tank. There is never a dull day as a science communicator!”
