With more than 10 years of experience in marine and environmental biology, Nadine Eisenkolb joins the Upper School as a new AP Environmental Science teacher.

Eisenkolb grew up in a landlocked portion of Germany and became interested in marine and environmental biology during a scuba-diving trip to the Canary Islands.

Eisenkolb attended school at the Hilo Marine Science Program, which is often referred to as a “marine biology heaven.”

She then became a research assistant at the Scripps Institute for Oceanography and earned her master’s in marine and environmental biology from the University of Southern California.

Eisenkolb is most excited to join the school because of the students, she said.

“Especially with Harvard-Westlake, they are so well known for their students wanting to learn and wanting to thrive in their subject areas, so I’m definitely really looking forward to that,” Eisenkolb said.
