Sylvia Medina is someone who is passionate about the environment and the animals that live in this world. As a youngster she loved to hike and enjoy the wilderness and especially loved animals. She took this passion and dedicated herself to becoming an Environmental Engineer where she could help make a difference.
Another passion Sylvia found was children! When her twins were born she knew she wanted to instill in them the passion of being steward of our environment. So when Sylvia's twins were infants - she found herself watching television shows for kids. This made her realize that there were few programs about environmental stewardship and endangered species preservation for children. So one early morning - about 1:30 am - while rocking her baby girl to sleep she came up with the idea of creating stories and products that teach children about the environment and the world around them. So the Green Kids Club was created.
Sylvia is the president, primary author, and creative director of the Green Kids Club. She has spent her career focused on environmental issues and helping to preserve animal welfare.
When she had twins, she became aware that she truly wanted her children to grow up with an environmental conscience and to understand the basics of environmental stewardship. With this in mind, she developed the Green Kids Club concept, which would help her children, as well as other children around the world, learn early environmental habits that they could share with others.
Besides being a life-long lover of animals and wildlife, part of Dory’s decision to rigorously focus on sustainability was after the birth of her first child. With a now 9-year-old son, Dory is highly vested in teaching children about environmental stewardship and aims to do so on a daily basis. Dory is thrilled to be able to work with Green Kids Club, which is quite a natural fit. She serves as a spokesperson at various events in the Northeast and educates others about Green Kids Club, its mission and books. She also works with the founder, Sylvia Medina, and the team to elucidate any content for marketing materials and handles the content of Green Kids Club social media promotions.
