Maj-Lis grew up in Duluth, Minnesota. She is grateful that the shores of Lake Superior gave her the opportunity to explore and gain immense appreciation for the outdoors. She graduated from The College of Saint Scholastica in December 2023 with degrees in Psychology and Natural Sciences. During her college career, she competed in running and Nordic skiing and completed research on sustainable greenhouse practices and biomarkers of plant stress. She is excited to be an AmeriCorps member at Teton Science Schools because of the place based learning model and holistic approach to STEM education. In her free time, she enjoys long trail runs, Nordic skiing, traveling, biking, playing the harp, reading, camping, and cooking.
