Austin Seay
Austin is excited to return for another summer at Broadreach! Austin grew up out west in Wyoming and Colorado. He attended Colorado Mesa University where he earned his undergraduate degree in biology, before continuing on to Miami University to earn his master’s in biology. After college, Austin started teaching and working at field stations for programs like Broadreach. He has traveled to many places and explored some of the most remote areas on the planet. Austin has taken school groups all over the world and is excited to see the fun places that he will explore with his students.

Annemiek (Miek) Gerritsen
Miek is excited for the adventures to come this summer! Originally from the Netherlands, Miek left her job as a small business owner to pursue her passion for diving. Since then, she's traveled the world through her work as a dive instructor. Since working as a dive instructor for Broadreach in the Caribbean last summer, Miek has been living in Bonaire, where she'll be leading our Advanced Dive adventure this summer. When not working as a dive instructor, Miek travels and enjoys time with friends. She can’t wait to meet her students and listen to their stories this summer!
