Meet the Executive Committee

Hi, my name is Erin Ogrodnik. I’m the current President of UNF’s KAO Environmental Honor Society. I am a first-year Biology student at UNF with a concentration in Coastal Environmental. One of the things I am passionate about is the conservation of our natural world. I hope that future generations will be able to enjoy the same beauty and wonder of nature that I have witnessed within my lifetime. In my free time, I like to hike, rock climb, bike, and paint. I am excited to be a part of this Honor Society, and I look forward to the impact we will make on campus and beyond.


My name is Morgan De Caro, I am a second-year student majoring in Biology with a concentration in Ecology and Evolution. A few things I am involved with on campus is Alpha Delta Pi, the Honors College, and Dance Marathon. I hope to go into Conservation Biology as my career, and KAO is a perfect opportunity for me and my interests. I look forward to meeting my fellow members, and feel free to reach out to me at any time.



Hi everyone! My name is Emma, I am the treasurer for KAO. I am a sophomore at UNF, majoring in Biology with a concentration in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Environmental Studies. I have always been fascinated with nature and conserving the natural beauty of the Earth. I like to spend some of my free time doing just that, by paddle-boarding kayaking, or hiking. I am looking forward to getting to know you all this year and share our passion for the environment!

Hello, my name is Mahelet and I am the Communications Officer for the KAO Honor Society. I am a junior at UNF majoring in Biology with a concentration in Biomedical Sciences and minoring in Psychology. After UNF, I plan to attend Medical School in hopes of becoming a surgeon. I have always been fascinated by the environment and all that it has to offer. Some of my favorite activities to do in my free time include hiking, going to the beach, watching movies, and spending time with my pet cat. I’m excited to be part of the KAO Honor Society and look forward to working with you all!
