Rebecca George grew up in a small town in Idaho and attended Brigham Young University-Idaho. She graduated with a degree in Social Studies Education and went on to teach middle school social studies for three years in the Washington, DC area and for one year in London, England. She then went back to school and earned an MA in sustainable cultural heritage from the American University of Rome in December 2020. For her master’s thesis, she found a way to incorporate her love of lighthouses into a paper that focused on the historic, cultural, and economic values associated with heritage lighthouses on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
