ProRanger Graduate Nathaniel Moreno PR02
I was born in Corpus Christi, TX. I am one of four boys, with two very encouraging parents. It has been their words of wisdom and teachings that have lead me to my successes in life. While attending the Baptist University of the Amerícas studying for my BA in Business Leadership I resided in San Antonio, TX. I was an athlete all through my childhood up into my sophomore year at BUA. I enjoy the outdoors, especially going fishing. Growing up, my family and I shared many outdoor experiences. It is those memories which have brought me upon the road I travel today.
I am participated in the ProRanger Program because I have always dreamed of a career such as this. My encouragement to pursue it has been the multiple times I have been told a career either in law enforcement or a lawyer would suit me well. After the door opened up for this program I went for it. I feel it is a career that I will love and enjoy everyday not only because it’s not only my dream job, but I feel it’s the door of opportunity to my other dreams in life.
Nathaniel came to the ProRanger Program with prior experience in the National Park Service as a participant in the Mid West Region Student Academy. He had worked at Missouri Recreational River.
Nathaniel went on to do his first summer internship with ProRanger at Buffalo National River.
US Park Ranger Nathaniel Moreno is now in a permanent protection ranger position at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore
