“The experience I gained from Youth Odyssey impacted my life and who I am today.”

Early Life

Vincent was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, and raised in Aransas Pass, Texas. His outdoor experience was fairly limited growing up, but that didn’t stop him from enjoying every second of any outdoor family adventure.

As a junior high student, he participated in Youth Odyssey’s Backpacking Camp. Participating in the program gave him a whole new perspective on the outdoor world, and he learned so much about himself.

Background

He attended Stephen F. Austin State University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Forestry this past May. His degree had an emphasis in Human Dimensions in Natural Resources.

During college, he spent most of his time outdoors. He was often outside doing lab work, or hammocking under the beautiful pines of East Texas. These experiences caused him to become even more passionate about having a career in the outdoors. He also dedicated time to volunteering with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. During this past year he was an intern with Goose Island State Park.
