In this episode, we sit down with Becky Dunlap, a passionate park and recreation professional and advocate, to learn how she ended up in a career in the field she loves so much without even realizing it.
Becky is a Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and a Project Consultant for GreenPlay, LLC, where she travels to local parks and rec around the country to help them create a vision for their communities. Becky is also the host of the podcast Becky Talks Parks, which is her passion project and a vessel to share resources, tips and tools with other park and recreation professionals (hey, we love a good parks and rec podcast).
We caught up with her last week at the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference in Indianapolis to find out:
- Why she thinks parks and rec is the perfect job for millennials
- The need for the field to continue to evolve in order to stay relevant
- Why park and recreation professionals should be so proud of what they do!
